Dear members and friends of the Boulder Valley Chapter of the National
Federation of the Blind of Colorado: 

You are invited to our January meeting. Remember, it will be held on the
second Saturday. It will be held in our regular meeting place. Please read
on for details. We will meet from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday, January
14th. We will actually get started about 10:15 to allow for those coming on
the bus. 

Our meeting place is in a prime location. It is in the First Presbyterian
Church of Boulder, at 1820 15th Street. This is just a block from the RTD's
Boulder Transit Center, which is at 14th and Walnut in downtown Boulder. 

This month we will meet in Room 250 in the education wing (Geneva Wing)
(Please see below for detailed directions.) 

This is a large church which participates actively in the community, and
which has many outside groups meeting there. Please come directly to our
meeting, and do not become distracted by other activities such as those
offering a meal. 

After the meeting, there will be the opportunity to enjoy any of the many
restaurants which are very close. 

We regret to announce the death of Romona Wolcott, the mother of our
President, Maryann Migliorelli, and the wife of our Vice President, Jim

Agenda items for our January meeting include: 

*	Plans for our upcoming Washington Seminar. It is scheduled for late
January and early February In Washington, D.C. If there are those who are
attending our Washington Seminar who have not attended it before, we will
try to give you information about it. 
*	The presidential release from our president, Marc Riccobono. 
*	We will get an update on the negotiations with the Boulder Community
Hospital over requiring folks to use inaccessible touch screens to register
for service. 
*	Reports on RTD matters such as gate markings at Park 'n' Rides,
Smart Cards and fare changes. 
*	Plans for inviting prospective members to our meetings. 
*	NFB philosophy, including our NFB Library Cards. 
*	Fund raising: We will hear reports on fund raising ideas. 
*	Other recent NFB of Colorado news. 

The following are detailed directions to our meeting from the Boulder
Transit Center: 

The Transit Center is at the corner of 14th Street and Walnut Street. Go out
the west exit from the waiting room and north to the corner. Walk east along
the south side of Walnut to 15th Street, and cross 15th Street. On the far
side of 15th Street, turn south. There will be a grassy strip between the
sidewalk and the street. On your left is a small parking lot. (You will
cross one driveway.) 

Soon after that, you will find a wide sidewalk going to your left (east).
Walk east about ten feet, then go down three steps, and proceed straight
ahead across the drive to the building entrance. There are other entrances,
but this is the entrance we are to use. 

Inside the building, walk straight ahead to the far wall, then turn left
into the hallway. After a while on your right you will find a hallway. Turn
to your left and jog through a doorway. Turn back to your right, and you
will pass on your right stairs going up, a door, and then the elevator. Go
up (either the stairs or the elevator) to second floor. Room 250 is located
between the stairs and the elevator. 

Following are alternate directions via Canyon Boulevard: 

Canyon runs along the south side of the Transit Center and another building.
Walk east on Canyon to 15th Street. Cross 15th and turn north. You will walk
beside the edge of a small fenced playground. Then you will walk along
beside a solid wall which has no entrances (but does have some large
indentations for windows). Cross a driveway and soon you will find the
sidewalk going east, with the steps, as described above. 

If you have questions or need further directions to this meeting location,
contact President Maryann Migliorelli at 303-499-9125 (home) or 720-284-2318
(cell), or maryannmigs at gmail.com or Curtis and Doris Willoughby at

We look forward to seeing you at a meeting full of valuable information and
planning for the rest of the year. 


Maryann Migliorelli, President
National Federation of the Blind 
Boulder Valley Chapter
