Subject: [nfbwatlk] Seattle Chapter Meeting
> Hello All,
> This is to remind you that we are having our monthly meeting of the
> NFBW Seattle Chapter meeting. The meeting is happening this weekend,
> Saturday September 19, 2009 from 10:00 - Noon. We meet at the Downtown
> Seattle YMCA, 909 4th St, between Madison and Marion. Thank you to
> Josie and Todd Armandtrout who are suppling the goodies for this
> This month you don't want to miss. Kay Burrows has collected a great
> list of tips for emergency preparedness and other items for those
> living in King County and around the Puget Sound area. We will discuss
> the upcoming Fall Convention and the youth activities that will be
> happening at the convention. We will also hear from Dr. Maurer via the
> September presidential release.
> Other items of interest will be planning the November meeting. Those
> of you who were at our Assistive Tech meeting earlier this year were
> able to see all the goodies that Mike Mello and Andrea Travis put
> together. Well, we agreed at that point we would repeat this type of
> meeting in November and make more people aware of the meeting. Be sure
> to let us know what piece of equipment you want to show off at our
> November meeting.
> We will also talk about the Macy's Shop For A Cause. Earlier this
> month, I thought that the Shop For A Cause was happening on the 20th
> of September. Instead, it is happening on the 17th of October. We will
> be handing out coupons for you to sell to your friend, families,
> co-workers and neighbors. This voucher / coupon will allow them to
> take advantage of great savings at the Shop For A Cause event in
> October. Details will be given at the meeting.
> We will also be talking about the Holiday Party. Some new ideas are
> perkelating in my brain and Kay Burrows has agreed to be the
> co-ordinator once again this year. We are also planning the Holiday
> Party for the 12th of December as a surprise guest will be coming to
> town and would like to make the party. Be at the meeting to be sure
> and get the details and voice your opinion.
> We are also looking for recipies for the Braille Monitor. Anyone
> wishing to share his or her favorite recipe will need to email it to
> myself or Mike Freeman before the end of the month.
> Don't forget to sell those Braille coins! Time is running out to buy
> the Louis Braille coin. On December 31, 2009, all unsold coins will be
> melted down and you will no longer be able to purchase the first ever
> American coin with true readable braille on it. We as a chapter and as
> an affiliate need to get the word out to our friends, families,
> co-workers, neighbors and the man and woman on the street. The sale of
> these coins will help to ensure that blind children will learn
> braille. Without braille, we are unable to enjoy much of life and are
> functionally illiterate. So, sell those coins. We will fill you in on
> the details of the Louis Braille Coin sale that our affiliate and our
> national organization has to offer us.
> Finally, don't forget that we will pull a name of a member of the
> chapter and that person will win $5! I look forward to you all
> attending this meeting.
