Hello All!

We had a great first meeting of the new NFBW Senior Blind Group. I
hope you can join us for future gatherings. Here is what we
accomplished today!

•	Set the foundation for a great group. Lots of laughter and lots of sharing!
•	Second, we have established that we will meet on a monthly basis. On
the 4th Saturday of the month at Noon we will gather for at least an
hour. Bring your favorite drink and join us!
•	Third, we are going to have a Senior Blind seminar next month! A
separate announcement will go out shortly. Save the date of March 27
from 11 – 1pm. Our goal is to discuss information regarding AARP /
IMAC, Dealing with hearing loss and vision loss simultaneously,
resources through Hadley and getting to know each other.  The link for
this seminar is below.
•	Finally we came up with topics for the next few meetings! For the
month of April, Suzi Prows will be sharing gardening tips and tricks
for blind gardeners. May we will be talking about Newsline, WTTBl and
BARD. June Kay Kipp will be facilitating a discussion revolving around
the fears and concerns we may have when our vision is diminishing.
This group is growing and dynamic! We are creating a place for people
who are older, of the “wise generation”, some who have been blind for
a long time and some who are new to low vision and blindness. We
invite you to join us! We invite you to share this email with someone
who might be interested in learning more. All are welcome!
