Everything Braille
Friday, January 4 at 8 PM
Join us for a celebration of Louis Braille’s birthday as we discuss “Everything Braille.” Lisa Salinger will begin the call with an abbreviated version of her conference talk on comparing the Braille Me and the Orbit Reader braille displays. Then we’ll open the discussion to hear how you have used braille to make various aspects of life more accessible. In addition, can you share any resources for hard-to-find or unusual braille items such as jewelry, games, t-shirts, greeting cards, etc.? If you’re a braille user, you won’t want to miss a dot of this discussion call.

Hibernation Hobbies
Monday, January 14 at 7:30 PM
How do you pass those long, cold, snowy days? Join us for a fun and interactive discussion call, where you can share your favorite winter pastimes; whether it’s gaming, baking, crafting, reading, curling up on the couch in front of the TV, or the like. Or maybe you’re a cold-weather enthusiast who can’t wait to tell us about the awesome outdoor winter activities we’re missing. Whatever your preference, come ready to share!

Getting Organized
Monday, January 21 at 8 PM
Once the holidays are over, and the tree and gifts are put away, let’s think about getting organized to make our lives easier in the new year. Can you easily find a blouse or pair of earrings or pair of shoes you want when you are in a hurry to get dressed to go out? Can you quickly find the right kitchen tool or important document when you need it? Ed Facemyer and Jeanette Schmoyer will share some suggestions for being more organized and thus more comfortable with vision loss while dealing with daily tasks.

Advocacy for All Call
Wednesday, January 30 at 8 PM
Coming out of the 2018 PCB Conference and Convention, our advocacy efforts have been focused on two priorities: improving blindness rehabilitation services and ensuring independent, private voting in our Commonwealth. Join us for an update on our efforts thus far. We want to hear how you’ve been affected by these two issues and get your feedback on moving forward.
