Last Call for 2016 Serenity Bookstore Orders

Summer is on the way out and Fall is soon to follow. With it comes the last Serenity Bookstore of 2016 – a great opportunity to order ACA literature and materials at significant savings.

Serenity Bookstore provides meetings a substantial discount on ACA literature and materials, making it easier and more affordable to spread the ACA message, support meetings and the fellowship. When meetings order ACA literature and materials through Serenity Bookstore, they receive a 20% discount off the entire order and pay no additional shipping charges! This discount is offered four times per year (quarterly), and is available only through West Great Lakes Intergroup, not to individual meetings. The next bookstore won’t happen until January 2017 so don’t miss this opportunity!
