If anyone who is attending the national convention can help at the Independence market, I would appreciate you letting me know. Please see the note below from Mrs. Maurer. The Independence market provides a wonderful service for people at the convention, but we can't do it without volunteers. Thank you.

Dear Gary:

We are beginning to put together the schedules for the Independence Market demonstrators/helpers, storekeepers/pay station attendants, and cashiers at the NFB 2016 National Convention. Here is a list of persons from your state who worked last year--

Gene Fleeman

Willa Jean Patterson

Ruby Polk

Please go through the list and eliminate those who will not be attending convention this year or who you believe will be unable to work. If you know of others who can work, please add them to the list so that I can give them an assignment this year.

We are anxious to get the assignments out, so please get back to us as soon as possible. It is contemplated that each demonstrator/helper will work a four-hour (morning or afternoon) and a two-hour (lunch) shift. This is only a total of six hours.

As you may be aware, there are other duties to be fulfilled in the market. The shift times we will assign to line marshals or other positions within the market will be the same as the ones for demonstrators/helpers and the storekeepers/pay station attendants. The exception is cashiers. The days the cashiers work, their shifts will be extended to accommodate the count out procedure at the end of the shift. We are trying to have more of a compliment of volunteers in these positions this year, so please look inside your affiliate and let us know of capable, willing people whom you would recommend.

Please do what you can to help us to have plenty of workers at the NFB Independence Market to assist our fellow members. I look forward to working with each of you on this important project.
