Wow, this feels really great.  I believe this is the kind of activity
that spreads the love of our Federation.

Hello, please read the attached file. I am also pasting the flyer below.
All are welcomed and encouraged to attend and share the flyer with many,
many friends.


Chapter Organizing Party


Who?         The National Federation of the Blind of California, NFBC 

What?       An organizing party to create a local chapter in the Union
City, Fremont and Newark area.

Where?     Starbucks, of course! 1752 Decoto RD., Union City

When?       Saturday, March 14 at 1 P.M.

Why?         To meet other blind people like you. 


Are you blind or visually impaired? If so, come join in the fun. The
NFBC is organizing a new local chapter and we need you. Come help and
create our new chapter. For more details please contact Lisamaria
Martinez at 510-289-2577. 


Through the NFB you can learn about:

*       Scholarship opportunities for blind high school and college

*       Cool new ways for blind students to participate in science, math
and engineering; 

*       How to access technology (including computers and cell phones);

*       Resources for blind seniors;

*       Networking opportunities for blind professionals;

*       Local resources for blind people in the Bay Area.


There are many concerns that blind and visually impaired persons deal
with on a daily basis. The National Federation of the Blind, NFB, the
largest organization of blind persons in the nation, tackles many of
these issues. The NFB passionately believes that it is respectable to be
blind and that any blind person can live happily along side their
sighted community members. The first step in becoming a successful blind
or visually impaired person is to find other blind and visually impaired
people who share your same concerns. The NfB is here to help you.
