I loved being a part, and I concur with Daniel's message.  Right on.

Subject: [Nfbmo] Kansas City Walk for Independence

Today the Kansas City Chapter had its annual Walk for Independence in
beautiful Loose Park. The Event was a success by any measure. It was well
attended, we raised quite a bit of money for our Federation, and we had lots
of good food and fun. President Wunder graced us with his presence. We were
also pleased to be joined by members of our Old Drum Chapter as well as
members of the Johnson County Kansas Chapter of the NFB of Kansas.  This was
yet another opportunity to show other park patrons that blind people are
normal, that the only difference between us and then them is that we lack
eyesight. We showed that the blind like anyone else enjoy getting together
with friends and having chicken at the park on a beautiful Saturday. I was
also pleased to have my mom and dad at the Walk. They got a chance to meet
some of my NFB friends. They will be going to our chapter meeting next
Saturday where they will get a chance to witness how the organized blind
manage their own affairs.

As Meet the Blind Month in October approaches, keep in mind that it is not a
bad idea to invite family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers, church
members, etc, to our meetings and other events. These meeting and other
events are not only for our benefit. They are a golden opportunity to tell
the public our story, a story of challenges, and more importantly a story of
triumph thanks to the NFB. 

Best Regards

Daniel Garcia
First Vice-President, Kansas City Chapter National Federation of the Blind
of Missouri
