>> We are also finalizing details of an "Intro to Braille Workshop" for family & friends of the blind to be held later in October at a local library and dedicated to the memory of our Past President, Ken Volonte. Participants will learn the basics of how to read and write uncontracted braille and take home an NFB braille alphabet card upon wich they have typed their own name.
