Hello Kentucky NFB Family, 


I am writing to let you know that I will not be joining you this year. I am unable to join you because, I am getting married in northern California the weekend of the Kentucky State Convention. My future husband and I hope to see you in years to come.

Good Evening All,

Believe it or not it is time to make plans for our NFB of Kentucky State Convention. We will convene the weekend of October 12 and 14 at the Hilton Garden Inn Northeast, 9850 Park Plaza Ave., Louisville, KY 40241. Make your reservations by calling the hotel direct at, 502-423-0018. Room rates are $135 per room, per night, plus tax. Reservations must be made no later than September 28th. If you are an NFBK member, which means your dews were payed to NFBK on or before August 1st, the Affiliate will subsidize your room $35 a night for 2 nights. This subsidy is for each room, not each person. You can have up to 4 occupants in a room. This would certainly help cut expenses. And, just think how much fun and how convenient it will be to stay at the hotel.

If you are a new member, again your dues paid on or before August 1, 2018 and are attending your first convention we are offering to pay the total expense of your room for 2 nights. Again this is per room, not per person. If you are a first-timer you should call me at 502-366-2317 so I can talk with you further. 

We will have the ability to preregister and pay for our meals online this year. We have our Pay Pal account ready to go. This should make life easier for all of us. I will have someone with more technical experience to give you the lowdown on how this is done. I am working on our menus , so as soon as I know how much these meals will cost we can start pre-registration.


Fundraising is a huge part of this organization and a tremendous reason the affiliate is able to offer financial assistance in the way of room subsidies. With that being said, please remember our Reverse Raffle. We ask that every member purchase and sell these chances. Chances cost $10 each and the grand prize is $500.00, with second prize winning $250.00 as well as every twenty fifth name drawn will win $25.00. Each NFBK chapter president has chances in hand for sell, so please reach out to your president.

We also have our NFB can koozies for sell. These tactile blue koozies are $2.00 each andd are an excellent ice breaker, stocking stuffer or hand out. Support your NFBK affiliate by purchasing a few koozies!



Hope to see you all at convention!
