Hi All,
Hope this email finds you all well.
I wanted to give you all an update on this grant that I was working on.
The Dayton Foundation, while I met their criteria, was a bit too involved
for me to complete all of their paperwork in time for their committee
meeting for December, and they only meet four times a year. SO I was sad to
send the text to Eric saying that the grant probably wasn't going to happen
this year...
It may!
I recently submitted the proposal to the Knights of Columbus Dayton Chapter,
and their board approved it. It is being shown at the March meeting for
general membership to vote on it! I probably will not receive the full
amount of the proposal from them, but it will be a start!

Fingers crossed that this project may actually happen for us. I will keep
you guys updated on how it goes.

Hope everyone has an amazing weekend.

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.
