Greater Orlando Council of the Blind

By Martha James

GOCB began its February meeting with its annual bake sale. Thanks to Amos and Elizabeth Bouyer and Sarah Brown for organizing it. Thanks also to everyone who helped set up, those who brought baked goods, and those who bought them. Our chapter has been offered a unique opportunity to participate as part of an inclusion day at Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Gardens of Winter Park. Some members will visit later this month to get an idea what is involved.

March will get off to a good start with our dine and donate on March 23rd at Tijuana Flats located at 7608 University Boulevard, Winter Park, 32792. Asli Goncer will keep the festivities lively with her music.

Our chapter will be preparing to host another trivia night on April 9, 2016. Once again, it will be held at the VFW at 3500 South Goldenrod Road, Orlando. The cost is $25 per person or $150 for a table of six players. The cost includes one free drink. GOCB would like to challenge other chapters to join us for a fun night of trivia. Let’s see which chapter can come out on top. A portion of the proceeds go to FCB. Thanks to the women’s auxiliary for graciously providing food again this year. The silent auction, which was popular at the last trivia night, will be part of this year’s event as well.

In addition, for those with computer access, GOCB is on both Facebook and Twitter. You can find us on Facebook by typing in “GOCB” and follow us on Twitter @GOCB_FL. GOCB invites all readers of this newsletter to like and follow us on these social networks respectively.
