Dear Friends,

Dear Friends,

We cordially invite you to attend Issues Facing persons who are Blind this coming Sunday.

For two sessions, we have carefully discussed "The Job Search." Now, we turn to solutions. What can we as individuals and organizationally do to help our friends who are blind find jobs in this shrinking economy?

Our facilitator is Ken Metz who has had vast experience in the field of employment. We hope to get your ideas for solutions to our job problem at next Sunday's meeting.
