2020 AWSC Literature Pre-Orders

To save on the price of shipping your literature you may pre-order literature orders for pick-up at our upcoming 2020 AWSC meeting at the end of May. Your order and the payment for your order must be received by the Literature Distribution Centre (LDC) by the end of the business day Monday April 27th, 2020.

Please be advised that the LDC is closed from Thursday April 23, 3pm, up to and including Sunday May 3. You may still send in orders and leave messages for our manager, however orders will not be processed until the office reopens on Monday, May 4.
