FYI July 2009
Montana ABC Closes
Pacific Press® retail closed its Montana Adventist Book Center on June 21, 2009. Service will continue at camp meetings, through mail order, and through book mobiles that visit churches on a regular basis.
Betty Britton, Idaho ABC manager, will be responsible for coordinating all services to the area. She says, “I look forward to getting to know everyone and I consider it a privilege to be asked to serve the members of the Montana Conference.”
Online services are available at AdventistBookCenter.com and Vegefood.com, and phone orders can be processed at (800) 524-2665.
We forgot to identify our lovely models from the June 2009 cover and feature article. They are Bonnie Rhodes, NPUC association accounting clerk, Lisa White, Rhodes daughter and Brooklyn White, her granddaughter, all of Woodland, Wash.
