Thanks for your training.

Richard Payne,  President
National Federation of the Blind of Ohio

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the 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

Congratulations Mr. President! Nice agenda. Having done this a time or two I know how challenging it is to put a good agenda together. I know you didn’t do it all yourself, because it is the Team Convention. Good job Mr. President. Go Team!

> There is a low, wheelchair fountain and then a taller one. Neither 
> reaches the floor, so they are a bit of a hazard since a cane will 
> slide under them. After the fountains is a door to the outside, which is one of the dog relief areas as well as a seating area for smokers.
> There are two sets of doors to pass through to get out. There is a

> the Mulberry Room at the west end, which means it is located at the back of the meeting room.

> the Butternut Room, which lies between the restrooms and the main 
> east-west hallway. When you leave the carpeting, walking south, you will know that you are back in the main east-west hall.
> When you cross this hall, you will enter Vinney's Lounge. The 
> Simmering Pot Restaurant is on your right at the west end of the hall, 
> and the front door of the hotel is to your left.
> When you begin walking east toward the check-in desk, you will pick up

> circular mirrors with thick frames are hung at shoulder height 
> alternately right and left in the hall, so be careful not to hug the

> are ice and soft drink machines near all the elevators. On floors one

> elevator is located on the right
> (west) side of the hall almost at the cross-piece hall, and there are 
> only five floors of rooms on the cross piece.
> A door leading to a dog-relief area on the west side of the corridor
