Have you noticed? The website is posting timely stories in GleanerNOW!as soon as we receive them.

Keep up with what's happening in the Adventist Church in the Northwest. If you send us stories and photos of something that has happened at your school or church IMMEDIATELY, your members and everyone else will be able to see your report within days or even hours of the event instead of the weeks it takes to come out in the print edition of GLEANER.

Let everyone know about the event at your church or school and, if help is needed, exactly what would be the most helpful. Just be sure to verify your facts first.

In December, the site was showing information about what schools and churches in the flooded areas of the Northwest were affected. Then came the stories about how individuals, churches and schools could help. Have you sent in a story about what your organization or institution is doing to help? Don't be surprised if your story becomes part of a larger story.

Include complete contact information at the end of your story in this order: name of the contact person who can answer questions or obtain answers for the editors; the organization you represent; your daytime telephone number (including area code); and your e-mail address. Do keep your local conference communication department informed. They will also have access to any stories you send for GleanerNOW!
