Larry Pitcher, president for the past 20 years of Christian Record Services for the Blind in Lincoln, Nebraska, is retiring at the end of September. Pitcher has served as president of CRSB since Jan. 1, 1995. Prior to that, he pastored the Wichita South Seventh-day Adventist Church in Wichita, Kansas.

CRSB, the official General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists ministry to people who are blind or visually impaired, improves the quality of life for children, teens and adults with visual impairments by providing them with free programs and services focused on their needs. Each year thousands of lives are changed by the services provided to them without cost. All who are blind, legally blind (20/200 with corrective lenses), or have physical impairments that prevent them from holding reading material are eligible for free services, including subscriptions to braille and large print magazines, a lending library, gift Bibles and study guides, and college scholarship assistance.

Christian Record is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) international organization serving individuals in approximately 80 countries worldwide. Currently it employs 64 people throughout the United States.

A come-and-go retirement reception in honor of Larry Pitcher will be held on Monday, Sept. 28, from 4:00-6:00 pm in College View Church’s Heartland Hall (4801 Prescott Ave, Lincoln, Nebraska). All are invited to attend.
