Greetings to all NH NFB North Country Chapter folks:

I'm posting this note as next Saturday the NH State Affiliate will be conducting a board meeting in Concord.  I know we all have busy lives, and although we have not met in a while I would like to provide updates to the board as requested.  I am most willing to submit a report along with our annual chapter fee of $50 if you all think we can authorize to do so.  so of our past highlights include the Walter Childs Magic Show in September, the Access Technology Expo also in September, and some outreach that both Julie, and I have provided specific to advocating on behalf of a young girl with a vision impairment that attends the NH Community college here in Littleton.  a special thanks to Julie's daughter Kylie for her support, and bringing this to Julie's attention.  In addition I've been following the SSIL group with their meetings, and supports to bring in new members.
If anyone has additional information to add please do so that I can compile this report in preparation for the board meeting.  Now one last topic, the chapter fee.  If you all agree on this I probably could ask Julie to get the $50 from the treasury so that I can submit to the state affiliate.  If not we can request a waiver, but I think from the current status of our treasury it would be in the best interest to pay the dues.  Also stay tuned as we are hopeful to receive another Imagination Fund amount sometime in the future.
I hope everyone is doing well.  Maybe a goal to start the New Year will be to find some time to have a meeting, and just get together.  In fact we might want to think about an invitation to the various communities to gather others with vision impairments.  I'm certain we can always find a space like the Italian Oasis or a place where we all can meet.  Take care.
