> Hi all.  This is pretty much the same process as getting a proclamation 
> for White Cane Safety Day.  We pulled the proclamation off of the NFBC 
> list, it's labeled Gubernatorial proclamation, printed it up and hand 
> delivered it to the mayor's office at city hall.  As I said at the board 
> meeting, our chapter already had a good relation with the city council 
> owing to the white cane proclamation and, unfortunately, to a guide dog 
> attack; so they know who we are.  They also know us as blind people from 
> the fact that several of our chapter members are on the local beep ball 
> teem.  Sports gets you a lot of publicity, and we have the opportunity to 
> inject a little NFB philosophy to reporters and anybody else who will 
> listen.
>    The main thing about having the mayor of our town present us with a 
> proclamation is that we get a platform to talk about the elegance and 
> usefulness of Braille and we get to do it on television.  City council 
> meetings are broadcast twice at least.  If you have been out in your 
> community, you will be warmly received because you are known and there is 
> no down side for anyone.  Such are my thoughts on the matter.  Good luck.
