On November 15, LVCB elected the following officers:
Debbie Rozear was re-elected president;
Ray Glover was re-elected vice president;
Jameel Memon was re-elected treasurer;
Annette Gozzard was elected recording secretary;
Trudy Fatzinger was re-elected corresponding secretary.
Congratulations to all of our 2015 officers! We currently have forty-three members and hope to continue to grow throughout 2015.
Seventeen LVCB members attended the 2014 PCB Conference and Convention. Two of them were first timers. A number of our members volunteered in a variety of tasks at the convention.
“Little Women” is the next musical at DeSales University in Center Valley, PA with described theater. A number of our members have recently attended “Music Man,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” and/or the drama, “Harvey” — all offered with description to blind and visually impaired persons. It is exciting to have this opportunity in our area. DeSales offers tickets at half price to persons with disabilities. Closed captioning is also offered for those who are hearing impaired.
Our holiday lunch this year will be held at Anatolian Kitchen with a Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine. Half a dozen members have eaten there and the restaurant is being very cooperative in allowing us to order from the full menu and will give individual checks.
A contingency of LVCB members has been meeting with officials in Bethlehem to encourage the installment of accessible pedestrian signals at intersections that have been determined to be difficult and even dangerous for blind persons to negotiate.
LVCB has been selling “Enjoy the City” coupon books and LVCB bars to support our treasury, our ability to partially reimburse those who attend the PCB convention, and to supply at a discount the tickets for local transit to our meetings and events. We also have been encouraging members to purchase PCB mugs and the True No Measure Cookbook.
We wish everyone a good winter and a blessed new year!
