9 year old sister's menarche

I don't remember how first period discharge works :\ I started my period when I was 15 and always had fairly heavy discharge but I don't remember having reddish discharge right before my first period (it was just like PERIODEXPLOSION-WELCOME TO THE CLUB).

My nine year old sister had some rust-tinged discharge earlier in the week. Is this the beginning of her very first period, a sign that it will come soon, or an indication that it will be here within the next year? She has breast buds but no noticeable armpit hair.

I'm curious because I'm excited to throw her a menarche party! My older sister and I were talking about how we were made to feel like our first periods were big, dirty secrets. I hid mine from my mom for months. Now that we're both older and see the importance in recognizing this awesome time, we want to acknowledge it for our little sister. :)

If you have any experience with menarche parties, I'd love to hear all about it!
