Fellow Federationists,

Do you believe in the impact community service and volunteerism have on individuals and communities? Do you believe that our society only stands to benefit when all of its members are included, engaged, and appreciated? Do you desire to be around like-minded individuals who believe in the true integration of the blind on the basis of equality in society and service?

Then we, the Community Service Division of the National Federation of the Blind, would like to invite you to our first annual seminar and business meeting. Join your Federation family on Tuesday evening, July 7 from 6:15-10 pm for an evening filled with thought-provoking presentations, inspiring speeches, and the unveiling of a special project we’ve been working on for our Federation family.  We will also be holding elections of the board of directors. The meeting will take place in Salon 7, Level 2 and chapter/affiliate representatives are welcome! . 

The Community Service Division is also celebrating the 75th year of the Federation by presenting a special 75-themed trivia night.

Come and join us on Thursday, July 7 at 6 pm and test your music knowledge in what we like to call 75 Years in Music. From coast to coast, spanning the decades, from Presley to Jackson to Clarkson, you’ll be brought down memory lane and bring home some cash, too. The entry fee is $10 per person.

Then, if you are swept up in the spirit of the movement or just know everything there is to know about the National Federation of the Blind, join us at 8:30 for 75 Questions about the Federation. From 1940 to 2015, from our leaders to our programs and divisions, you’ll have the chance to take the competition to school and some money to the bank. The entry fee is $10 per person.

The top winners in each event will receive a cash prize. The more people who play, the larger the payout. Both events will take place in Salon 9, level 2.

Things to know:
Teams and individuals are welcome.
Please bring a slate, as we will take answers in Braille only.
To ensure a fair game, no portable electronic devices (phones, tablets, etc.) can be used during the games.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back.
 “We need your service, right now, at this moment - our moment - in history. I'm not going to tell you what your role should be; that's for you to discover. But I am going to ask you to play your part; ask you to stand up; ask you to put your foot firmly into the current of history” — Barack Obama 
Did you know that   your  unwanted vehicle can be just what is needed to help         drive	 change for the blind .
