New Arrangement for Hand-Drying at District Conventions
In our efforts to simplify arrangements and reduce costs, the Society is pleased to announce a new arrangement that will take effect at the annual district conventions starting with the “Keep On the Watch Even Longer” convention in the summer of 2010. The Society needs to carefully allocate its resources so that the worldwide work can continue to grow and that the Society can defend itself from legal challenges instigated by our opposers.
Effective this summer, the number of paper towels allowed per visit in the restrooms at convention sites will be reduced from one to zero. We do not think our dear brothers and sisters will notice the difference. Toilet paper will continue to be supplied at this time. However we will instruct the attendants to ensure that toilet paper is not used to dry hands but is used only for its intended purpose. The conventioneers are encouraged to bring their own hand towels to the convention, and keep them in a neat bag. Please do not let such bags block the aisles as any resulting accident could bring heavy responsibility, possibly bloodguilt upon you.
We appreciate your support of these theocratic arrangements. (1 Cor. 14: 33) We look forward to sharing with you in the fine spiritual feast at the upcoming “Keep On the Watch Even Longer” convention.
