Last Saturday I sent out a notice of travel services available to citizens of Northern Virginia through the Columbia Light House (CLB).

Through an Arlington County grant, there are a series of additional services offered by the Columbia Light House for the Blind available to those who live in Arlington County.  See below.

There may be those of you who may wish to take advantage of these services.

The CLB contact person is Olivia Norman Her email address is onorman at clb.org<mailto:onorman at clb.org>; phone 240-737-5170.
