The National Federation of the Blind San Fernando Valley Chapter kicked off
the summer this year by sending eight of its members to Dallas, Texas to
attend the national convention. We also had a successful outing to the San
Antonio Winery on June 23rd. Thank you very much to all the 19 chapter
members that joined us, plus six special friends of the chapter. Everyone
enjoyed good food, good company and good wine. 


The Sports and activities committee is hosting the 2nd annual Deep Sea
Fishing Charter on Saturday, August 18, 2012. We will be fishing out of
beautiful Marina Del Rey. The boat departs the harbor at 12:30 pm and
returns approximately at 5:30. You can even obtain   a free California
fishing license by following this link:
