Darren, 

Thank you so much for sharing this with us.  I sure would like to see
this.  

I also want to thank you for the great job you did at the student
division luncheon and with the auction.  People are still talking about
the good tips you gave the students.  

Tell Paula it was good to see her at the convention and I wish I would
have had more time to visit with her.  

Charlene

Hello NFB of WV,
I was asked to forward this announcement to my contacts in WV.

Dear Friends,:

                        The Teubert Foundation and the Huntington Museum
of Art are teaming up to bring to Huntington a wonderful opportunity.
On October 12, 2011, at the Museum's Auditorium, there will be a
screening of the movie, Going Blind.  The producer of this film, Joe
Lovett, will be here from NYC to introduce the film and conduct a
discussion and Q&A afterwards.  Mr. Lovett is a Peabody Award winning
producer having produced for CBS News and ABC News 20/20.  He has
glaucoma and over the years has lost a significant amount of his vision.
He was inspired to create this documentary to increase public awareness
of blindness, vision loss and the vision rehabilitation system.
Enclosed is a description of the film.

                         This is a great opportunity for the entire
community but also a special occasion for those who serve in the fields
that deal with visual impairments.  We certainly hope that you will be
able to attend this event and look forward to seeing you at the Museum
on October 12, 2011.  If you should have any questions regarding the
film, please do not hesitate to contact either of us.

                                                            Very truly
yours,



    Jimelle Bowen, Executive Director                Margaret Mary
