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)
