I was made aware that not everyone can read attachments, so here is the
MPVI Calendar of Community Events once again.

These are events from multiple organizations around the state who are
providing services and programs for kids who are Blind and visually
impaired. If you know of other events please contact me and I will have
them added.  Amy Shepherd- amyshepherd at mpvi.org
