Dear fellow Federationists:

I am writing to you to give you news about one of our members, as well as an opportunity to help him. Most of you will know our fellow chapter member Ron Metenyi, who has been involved in the NFBMD for decades. I have not seen Ron at a chapter meeting in a very long time, which is unusual as he was heretofore a very regular attendee, and I called him to express my, and the chapter's, concern for him and to see if we could be of help to him. He indicated that he has not been feeling well for quite some time, and when I spoke with Sharon Maneki about his situation she informed me that he has had some hard times lately. We thought he might appreciate thoughtful contact from his friends in the Baltimore Chapter. What I am suggesting is that, at the chapter's Repast after the meeting, we provide a Perkins Brailler so that members can write notes to Ron and give him our best wishes. These messages would then be sent to Ron in a package along with a nice card. I would like to have somebody available to write messages on the Perkins for those who don't know Braille. If you feel that you will not be able to attend the upcoming chapter meeting but you would like to send a message to Ron, please reply to me personally with the text of your message.

Thank you, 

Renee West
