Subject: [Nfbnet-members-list] Happy New Year: News and Notes from the Community Service Division
The Community Service Division is excited to start 2017 off strong with our federation family!
We are excited to let you know what weâ€™ve been up to over the past few months, keep you up to speed on what we are doing now, and give you a quick look at some of what is in the works in the near future.
Take a look back at the Community Service Divisionâ€™s 2016 with our annual year in review here: http://nfbcommunityservice.org/blog_2016_Reflecting_Building_Succeeding .
Join us for an exciting and interactive conference call to start off the new year!
On February 19th at 7:00 PM eastern, The Service Engagement Committee of the NFB Community Service Division will be hosting a call for those who would like to involve themselves, or their local chapter in a community service project or two, but could use some tips on how to overcome doubts they might be having about actually giving back. Dial (712)432-0140 and enter access code 808277.
Did you know we have a blog ( http://www.nfbcommunityservice.org/blog <http://www.nfbcommunityservice.org/blog> ) where we host, and are always looking for community service stories and experiences that communicate that through giving back we as members of the federation live the lives we want? If you have any, please send them to us at blog at nfbcommunityservice.org . Looking for some topics to get you started? check out these three from our blog editor Chris Parsons, pick the topic(s) you like and submit it for posting! January: National Mentoring Month (mentoring experiences or tribute to your mentors). February: National Green Week/Great American Cleanup (spring, time to be outside; green- or nature-themed experiences; gardening). March: Alternative spring break projects.
Finally, Please take a few moments to tell us how weâ€™re doing by filling out this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TR88XPL. This will help us see where we are doing well, and where we can improve.
Thank you so very much for your time, and we wish you a wonderful beginning to your 2017.
Yours in The movement,
The Community Service Division Leadership Team:

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back.
â€œWe need your service, right now, at this moment - our moment - in history. I'm not going to tell you what your role should be; that's for you to discover. But I am going to ask you to play your part; ask you to stand up; ask you to put your foot firmly into the current of historyâ€ — Barrack Obama
Help drive change for the blind .
