Hi everyone,

I wanted to thank those of you who participated in the travel seminar in
Kansas City on Saturday, especially those who traveled to attend and/or

A special thank-you goes out to Debbie Eifler, who played hostess and made
sure we were fed, Erin Magoon, who let me boss her around and helped me out
at the head table, and the Kansas City Chapter for inviting us to use their
space and advertising the event to their members.

The presentations were certainly informative, informational, and inspiring.
We had a mixture of members and guests speak about travel .  I would like to
note that Jessica Snyder came all the way from New York to talk about her
experiences with her first guide dog, and Chris Parsons, only a week out
from graduating from the Colorado Center, was willing to take time away from
home and share her adventures with the attendees.  Thank you also to Rita
Lynch for sharing her journey with the cane and Erin Magoon and Erica Wolf
for helping us understand the scary world of GPS.

Seriously, guys, if you missed this event, you should be sorry.  :) But this
certainly won't be our last seminar.  Stay tuned for more programs and
events held by the Missouri Association of Guide Dog Users, a strong and
proud division of the National Federation of the Blind of Missouri!
