Good Morning Again Federationists:

I thought I’d send out the events that Colorado is doing if you’re looking
for something to liven things up during the week. I’ve done a few of the
Friday events, and they’re really well done. If anyone has events or
workshops you think we can do in Iowa, let me know and we’ll get to work on
them. Thanks!

make sure lid is sealed after each use. 

Pull out cardboard center and discard.

Pour water solution over  the paper towels and leave to absorb.

you are blind or low vision and need to learn some basic cane travel
technique. Whether you are a beginner or a well versed traveler with advice

Philosophy Friday

Join  Us as we put our philosophy to the test with some stimulating and

We will consider these questions and more. Come prepared to participate.
