Subject: [NABS-L] You are Cordially Invited to the 2018 Etiquette 
Dinnerhosted by the Employment Committee of the National 
Federation of the Blind!

Dear Federation Family,

You are cordially invited to attend the 2nd annual Etiquette 
Dinner presented by the Employment Committee of the National 
Federation of the Blind! At this dinner, you will be educated on 
the ins and outs of appropriate etiquette in both professional 
and social dining settings. Both blindness specific and general 
information will be shared. From knowing which fork to use and 
ways to access the menu, to how much to tip, and even appropriate 
dinner conversation. These are just a few of the things that will 
be discussed. There will also be a question and answer portion at 
the end. For this portion of the evening, you will have the 
opportunity to anonymously ask those burning questions that you 
may be too afraid or embarrassed to ask out loud. Simply write 
down your question in either braille or large print, bring it 
with you to dinner, and get the answers you seek!

The dinner will be held on Tuesday July 3rd at 6:30PM at Café 
Osceola located within the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel. Doors will 
open at 6:00PM. Attendees are responsible for the cost of their 
meal and are required to register in advance to reserve their 
seat.  The dress code is business casual, and we request that you 
arrive early so we can begin promptly at 6:30PM.

Lastly, 3 lucky attendees will be chosen at random and the cost 
of their entire meal (except any alcoholic beverages)will be 
covered at no expense to them!

The following menu options will be available during the event:

·      Soup of the Day- $5.25

o   Ask your Server for selection(s)

·      COBB SALAD- $14.50
