When the steering committee met this summer to discuss our plans for 2011-2012, we decided to make some minor changes to our scheduling. Normally, we alternate between meeting at the Plaza library for formal presentations and having social events that are more casual.
However, this year, we decided to add regular social events so instead of having those every other month, we will be planning something fun to do every month! We want to vary the locations of our monthly social events, so if you know of something fun going on in your neighborhood, please let us know! In June, several of us met at the Nelson Art Gallery to enjoy some culture. In July, we went to Crown Center for their free Friday Night Flick – the awesome people at Crown Center turned the subtitles on so we were able to enjoy Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone with the rest of the Kansas Citians who came.
This Saturday, August 13, we are headed to the Shatto Milk Farm in Osborn, MO for a tour. The tour begins at 10am and a sign language interpreter will be provided by Nexus Interpreting. Check out the event on our Facebook page for more information – hope to see you there!
We will continue to have our formal meetings every other month. Our next formal meeting is Saturday, Sept. 17 at 10:30am at the Plaza Library. We will have two guest speakers sharing about hearing loss in the medical profession. You can find more about our upcoming events on our new Events page.
As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us – we’re happy to answer any questions and are always open to ideas to how we can expand our advocacy and education efforts in Kansas City. You can links to our Facebook page and Twitter feed to the right and our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great week and hope to see you at Shatto this Saturday!
