March Minute Message

Fellow Federationists:

Thank You.

March is always an exceptionally busy month for the NFBMD. We are able to meet our goals and get our work done because many people are willing to lend a hand and participate. Many thanks to everyone who donated money, provided baked goods and participated in our basket bingo fundraiser which took place on March 11. Special thanks to the Central Maryland Chapter, who hosts this event each year. Plan to be at the next basket bingo on March 10, 2017.

January Minute Message

Fellow Federationists:

Best wishes for a happy, healthy, successful New Year to everyone.

Although the New Year is in its early stages, as usual, NFBMD is off to a quick start.  The Diabetic Action Network Committee held its first support call on January 7.  All of the participants, even the experienced diabetics, learned something new. These calls will be held on the first Thursday of each month at 7 pm.  The call-in number is 641-715-3272.  The access code is 720125.  Help us spread the word to diabetics or people interested in diabetes.

July Minute Message from the Movement

Fellow Federationist: The 75th Anniversary Convention of the National Federation of the Blind was outstanding. Breaking the World Guinness Book of Records for the largest umbrella mosaic will be something that we can all talk about for years. It was a great symbol of how we raise expectations for blind people every day.
