Former Beehive Bookstore Owners Called on a Mission

Former Beehive Bookstore Randy & Kathy Winn received their mission call last week They will be serving in the mission office of California, San Jose Mission beginning in June. Kathy was working at the bookstore when the big white envelope came, so Randy brought it down to the store to open. It was fun to share in their excitement of their call. This was Kathy's first mission call, and she had a particularly big smile on her face. Congratulations!

Joy Hulme Book Signing

We enjoyed having Joy Hulme in the store. She is always so fun to talk to. She writes nonfiction, educational books for children in verse which are beautifully illustrated by various artists and was signing her new counting book Easter Babies. She also brought several other books to sign, including Mary Clare Likes to Share, Wild Fibonacci and Climbing the Rainbow. At left, she and a friend chat while she signs. Thanks, Joy, for your books and sharing them with us!
