The Snohomish County Council of the Blind is now an official non-profit organization. Their purpose statement fits right in with many recent efforts from the 2017 ball game with Seattle police officers, to fund raisers to assist the visually impaired with needs, advocating for public access issues, as well as to be a greater part of the local community. ~ August 26, 2018.
I am sight impaired and because of the training I received from the Disaster Medicine Project, partnering with SCCB, I knew how to call 911 when my sister fell. Thank you SCCB for equipping our community.
As someone attending a WCB convention for the first time, I really didn’t know what to expect. There was lots of good information, particularly relating to what the Talking Book and Braille library was doing, and the employment panel. The panel I was most looking forward to going in and did not disappoint, was the recreation panel, with Outdoors for All and Vision Loss Connections. Although I’ve had a lot on my mind since coming home, I had thought about getting involved with Outdoors for All, but since convention, I’ve actually taken steps to do so. It was also good to socialize with other blind people. I am of the opinion that, while blind people should do as much as they can within the larger community, they should also have a community of other blind people to know they are not alone, and conventions like this give that opportunity. ~ November 14, 2018
