JC Lions receive update on National Federation of the Blind (Williamsburg Chapter)


Corlis Jones (Chapter President) briefed club members at a recent breakfast meeting. Lions Carrol and Dal Bailey are pictured with Jones. The NFB improves blind people's lives through advocacy, education, research, technology and programs encouraging independence and self-confidence. It is the leading force in the blindness field today and the voice of the nation's blind. The ultimate purpose of the NFB is the complete integration of the blind into society on a basis of equality. The James City Lions Club took the opportunity to donate $450 to the NFB Greater Williamsburg Chapter. For more information about the local chapter, e-mail Ms. Jones @ Cmjones153@cox.net
