ATTEND NFB AND AFB ANNUAL CONVENTIONS
Both annual conventions are being held in a virtual format due to Covid19. This offers everyone a chance to attend without leaving home. In addition to those who are blind or visually impaired, these conventions are also relevant to parents, educators, employers, and anyone else connected to the blind and visually impaired community.

Our newest board member is David Cass who was first introduced to Club VIBES when he accompanied his wife to a wine tasting fund raiser that we had at Pero's on the Hill. He discovered what a fun group we are and began volunteering as a pilot and doing other jobs as needed. Now David has an official role. In David's pwn words,
"Hello everyone, David Cass here. I am a native Knoxvillian (born-1957.) I attended Gibbs high school and have a long lineage of railroad engineers in my family so I tooted my own horn for 39 yrs. The best part as I began the train ride, Cyndy and I married in 1979. We enjoy 2 adult sons & 2 grandkids. Thanks to Cyndy, I was able to attend a Vibes/WBIR function. Thank you Vibes, for welcoming me! Such an " Essential Organization" that I am blessed to be a part of and I have a larger circle of friends today!
We had a special visitor at our May board meeting. Because we were meeting from home via Zoom, baby Leila, daughter of VIBES treasurer, Cassie and her husband Jim dropped in for a short visit. We were enchanted watching Leila. We would have liked to have spent the entire meeting just watching her!
