Hello Marilyn:

Cheryl Echevarria here.

Nice to see you on NAGDU are you joining us?

Being a Lion myself have to mentioned this to all the Lions clubs as well.

Long Island Chapter of the NFB has been helping I have passed around the 

I will also bring it up to our State Convention in Albany which is happening 
September 15-18, and are having a town meeting with the Commission on the 
16th, as well as we are fighting to keep Newsline going strong.

This is not a guide dog related issue, I would just like to put my 2 cents 
here and leave it as that.

Have a great day!

Leading the Way in Independent Travel!
