Have you ever wondered what happens at the National convention? Are
you a first-timer? And, what should you wear, what places are there to
eat, how do you travel and who will be there? These are the questions
that I have gotten in the last few weeks. Therefore, if you would like
to have some of your questions answered; then join Cleveland
teleconference call. Even if you are not attending the National
Convention; but curiosity has you pondering.
On Monday, July 18, 2018, there will be a teleconference call to
provide information on the 2018 NFB National Convention that will be
held in Orlando Florida from July 3rd to July 8th. We will discuss
travel, agenda the hotel and more.
Please join at 7:30 PM at 641-715-3294 and input the code, 246345.

*** Next Cleveland Chapter meeting Friday July 20th ***

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create
obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life
you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
