This sketch can be used as an addition to “Lucy Leader is In! Five Cents Per Session” to introduce officers and explain their positions.
Setting: Lucy Leader is seated at a table. An empty chair is next to the table, facing the audience. An empty can with a sticker that reads “SESSIONS – 5 CENTS” is on the table. Two helpers are holding up a banner with two sticks on either end over Lucy. The banner reads: LUCY LEADER IS IN!

Patty Peppermint: (Approaches Lucy, frustrated, wringing hands)
Oh, thank goodness, you are in!
Oh, Lucy Leader and where have you been?
Why, what’s your trouble? What can it be?
You have seen all my resources.
Please, please tell me.
Patty Peppermint: (Sits down)
There’s so much to do. I don’t know where to go.
Mites, devotions, and mission service you know.
I can’t do them all, and my list seems to grow!
(Patty unrolls a long list of to-do items)
But Patty, you don’t have to do it all yourself!
You have a great team; just ask for their help!
(Officers walk in holding the sign with their office title high over their head for the audience to see. They speak to Patty Peppermint and then stand off to the side.)

You’re right! With my team and the resources here,
Dear Lucy, thank you, I have no fear!
Okay, Patty, our session is through.
Just remember when you lead, it’s not about you.

LWML will thrive with help from your sisters and brothers!
Sharing the Gospel, let’s continue to do.
Christ fills our hearts, it’s most certainly true!
