LDS canneries get scheduling changes; remain busy

Summarized by Janus Wilkinson

LDS canneries get scheduling changes; remain busy
Utah co UT Journal 16Aug99 C6
By Edna Evans: Journal Publications

Due to increased usage of LDS canning factories in Utah, new controls have been initiated to help users. A member wishing to use the canning facility must now make reservations through the Stake rather than the ward, as before.

Jo Thompson of the Church's welfare services said that although their mission statement is to assist members of the Church to be self-reliant, that Y2K has caused a lot of panic and changes had to be made in the way the cannery was scheduled.

Bishop Jerry Cluff at the Spanish Fork facility said "We were overwhelmed before,but now everyone has a chance to get in. They just have to go through the stake. It is much more organized and very fair. The stakes are all using the new plan and it is advantageous to everyone."
