BTC 2016 directories celebrate national heroes
NASSAU, The Bahamas — Photographs of six national icons are proudly and prominently displayed in full colour on the five bold and beautiful covers of the 2016 Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) Directories – their inspirational life-stories told inside. Packed with informative, interesting articles, stories and features, they are an invaluable powerhouse of local knowledge and everyday useful information.
The books carry pertinent emergency and government information along with a myriad of material for BTC customers including summaries of BTC products and services, how to sign up for new services, billing information, and an extensive telecommunications history – a great resource for school students. These handy, worthwhile annual reference books are a home and office essential whether the White or Yellow Page Directories, a smaller sized Mini of Business Listings, or the combination White and Yellow Pages serving Grand Bahama and Abaco, all now available at BTC locations and Post Offices nationwide.
The six featured deceased icons: Dr Myles Munroe, A. Bismark Coakley, Sir Albert Miller, Mildred ‘Millie’ Sands, Reno J. Brown and Captain Everett W. Roberts are regarded as National Heroes and remembered with others during Bahamian National Heroes’ Day which honours the individuals who have contributed to the development of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas as a sovereign and independent state. The national list includes freedom fighters, politicians, religious leaders, educators, suffragettes, artists, cultural icons, sports icons, and entertainers. It was officially established in 2013, replacing Discovery Day (also known as Columbus Day).
