We will be having a Guid Dog Presentation

When: Friday, September 16th, from 10am to 12 noon

BSS will be hosting an information presentation about guide dogs and the process to receiving a guide dog. Join us to learn about what qualifies someone for a guide dog, what it is like to live with a guide dog, and what it is like to be responsible for a guide dog in everyday life. This will be a hybrid event. In person seating will be limited, but anybody can also join via our Zoom Meeting. Simply let us know if you intend to join in person or online when you RSVP.

For the safety of all in-person participants we will require face coverings inside our office. If you RSVP for an in-person seat but unexpectedly feel unwell the day of our event, we ask that you attend via zoom.

Coffee Hour, Before Peer Support and Tech Club

In the spirit of bringing back the comradery and ambiance that was present in the lobby, the Peer Support and Technology Club zoom meetings will be open for one hour before the scheduled club meeting. Please feel free to join and chat with other participants, and use this time to get set up on zoom as we will be starting the meetings promptly when scheduled.

Exploring Braille

When: Friday, September 30th from 10am-12 noon

Have you considered learning Braille but are unsure if you are ready? Are you in the process of learning Braille but looking for additional ways to practice and refine your skills? Have you learned Braille in the past but want to discover new ways to incorporate it in your daily life? Join us on the last Friday of every month and be a part of our Braille learning community!

We will mail out materials personalized to each individual’s braille reading level so participants can follow along and work together with the group. Personalization means we can print materials in fully contracted braille for the advanced participant, and up to including the uncontracted braille alphabet for those just starting the learning process. Everyone is welcome to join and learn new and fun ways to use your growing Braille skills. RSVP early in the month to receive your worksheets on time.
