Dear NFB of Ohio Family, Friends, and Colleagues,

I write to tell you what a joy it was to be a part of the Columbus seminar on April 9th and 10th. The dinner fellowship and the "gathering in" meeting was excellent in every respect. President Payne and Vice President Albers conducted the meeting flawlessly and the energy that I observed as our teams visited the offices of our state representatives was commendable and palpable. I must admit, as I walked back to the hotel after my last meeting of seven for the day, I was a bit tired, but it was a "good" tired because I thought it had been a productive and exhilarating day overall. I have said this before, but it bears repeating one more time i.e., it is wonderful to see the growth and maturity of our affiliate leaders and I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful and productive organization. As I came home yesterday, I thought to myself, "This is why I remain a part of this movement and it is why we should continue our efforts in the state of Ohio." I will leave you with the comments of one of the representatives with whom I met as it relates to our service animal bill (HB 303). He said, "I do not know what the problem is because this should have been done a long time ago and the way it is presented here makes me want to make sure it gets done as soon as possible." I could not have said it any better myself.
