OOOOO, you're selling something chocolate??? I wonder if I could order some and you send it to me? 

Blessings in Jesus’ name!  
Philippians 2:9-11
9Why God also has highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Advice from my cats:"Meow when you feel like it."

Subject: [NFBWATLK] Back from the Oregon Convention

Hi Listers,

As some of you know, I went to the NFB of Oregon convention last weekend in Albany, Oregon. It was a great gathering, and has whetedt my appetite for our own convention on the first weekend in November. Pam Allen was the national representative in Oregon. She is First Vice President of the National Federation of the blind and Executive Director of our Louisiana Center, where our own board member, Noel Nightingale got her blindness skills training some years back. Pam was a tremendous surrogate for President Riccobono, and delivered a very positive message to all saying the Federation is constantly doing more great work, and all of us have a place as part of the Federation family.

I sold some of the chocolate covered expresso beans and cherries, and talked up our convention in Olympia this year. I know Carla and Lucas McQuillan will be here, and perhaps a few more Oregonians as well.

Oregon has some great new and exciting things going on, including several great fund raisers, new chapter building activities and much more.   I was interested in their work with the "at large chapter", as they seem to have a pretty strong group of participants. We may learn more about their keys to success in the future.

Anyway, the convention was great, and ours' is coming up November 3-5 in Olympia. Don't miss this event. The conventions are amazing. And, thank  you Oregon for the tremendous hospitality and comradeship.
