The Western Wayne County chapter of NFBM is proudly sending three of our 
youngest members to the Washinton seminar with the Michigan Youth Outreach 
and our best wishes. We are hoping that Cheryl, Jeff, and Steve will have 
great fun and learn lots. Also thanks to all our adult role models for 
investing in our blind youth. Especially awesome is that Steve and Jeff 
Crouch will be spending their fourteenth birthday in our nation's capitol 
with the National Federation of the Blind. Happy Birthday from all your 
family and friends back home in Michigan. Blessings, Donna 
Posont-President-Western Wayne County Chapter, National Federation of the 
Blind of Michigan
