Birthday Broadcast for Pres. Monson

Postby techgy » Mon Aug 06, 2012 9:46 pm

The LDS.org web site indicates that on Saturday August 18th the church satellite system will carry the broadcast at various times for the birthday celebration of Pres. Monson. However, it doesn't indicate any times and I've not see a letter giving the information.

Does anyone know the broadcast times?

Dang, I can't even find the "broadcasts" page anymore. All I get is a way to view past broadcasts.

A letter was sent dated 5 July 2012 to stake presidents and bishops (and some other leaders) about the broadcast of "Golden Days: A Celebration of Life" to commemorate President Monson's 85th birthday.

It will become available on the Internet on mormonchannel.lds.org and LDS.org at 7:00pm MDT on Saturday, August 18, and will continue to be viewable through 9:30pm the next day (Sunday, August 19).

It will be shown on the satellite system at 7:00pm MDT on August 18, and then every 2.5 hours later, with the last showing at 8:00pm on August 19.

Alan,
Thanks. I figured that someone would have the information. I'll have to check at our stake offices again for that mysterious letter :)
In regards to upcoming church events - THIS page has the temple square events listed. I found this after Alan provided some hints.

I have seen several this year, related to various broadcasts, and they are one of the 'Notices' memoranda that always get sent out, and there may have however been a cover letter with this one as there is on occasion when the broadcast is a 'one-off' type of broadcast like this one is. Whether it was just the Notice memorandum or a cover letter was included I do not know.

As I mentioned earlier, there was a cover letter sent on 5 July 2012 regarding this particular broadcast, along with the detailed broadcast instructions. I'd post the letter, except that since it has not been made public by CHQ, I can't choose to do that myself. But every stake received it, and the stake president and stake clerk have access to the Official Communications Library if they have misplaced the paper copy.
