Meet the Blind on the 16th Street Mall

Wanted to make all aware of the below. Got to love Meet the Blind Month!

Meet and Greet on 16th Street! Monday October 15th 7:30am-6:00pm As many of you are aware, October is Meet the Blind Month. This is OUR opportunity to show the community that we are CONFIDENT, COMPITENT, AND INDEPENDENT individuals who share way more similarities with our peers than differences! In order to show off our AWESOMENESS to the downtown dwellers of Denver, the Mile High and Denver chapters are working with the NFB of Colorado state affiliate to have an ALL DAY Meet and Greet on the 16th street mall. On Monday, October 15th, we will be meeting at 16th Street. and Stout at 7:30am and will be set up until 6:00pm. During this time, we will have a booth where we will hand out NFB of Colorado and Colorado Center for the blind literature, Brailing names, giving away candy, and may even have some fun tasks for folks to try out under sleep shades. People who are not working the booth will be sent with literature to nearby light rail stations where they can work the crowd and spread the GOOD word about blindness! This will be a WONDERFUL opportunity for members in the community to learn more about our organization and most importantly learn more about US! This is such a fantastic event, but it will only work if we have CONFIDENT, COMPITENT, and INDEPENDENT members available to represent our organization. Please consider signing up for one of the following shifts 7:30am-10:30am 10:00am-1:00pm 12:30pm-3:30pm 3:00pm-6:00pm Your support will make a HUGE impact on our ability to share the message that blindness is not a tragedy and that with the proper tools and training, blindness can be reduced to a mere physical nuisance. If you will be able to assist, please contact Jessica Beecham at or by phone at 303-778-1130 extension 223. In your correspondence, please be sure to include your name and the shift or shifts that you will be able to cover. LET’S MAKE THIS MEET AND GREET ON 16TH STREET THE BEST MEET THE BLIND EVENT IN THE NATION!!!
