Club VIBES Visits St. Louis for 2018 American Council of the Blind Convention
On June 30, 2018 through July 2, 2018, some Club VIBES members visited St. Louis, Missouri to attend the American Council of the Blind Convention. At the convention, members got to practice some of their independent-living skills by learning how to safely navigate a hotel. Members also got to learn about and try some new technology for blind/visually impaired as well as attend breakout sessions about issues concerning those with visual impairments. Everyone had a great time at the convention and thought that it was a great learning experience. Stay tuned for audio podcasts about some of the technology and vendors we got to meet at the convention.
Also while in St. Louis, VIBES members also got to meet members of the St. Louis National Fitness Challenge team and visited the St. Louis arch together. Club VIBES and the St. Louis team were featured in a news story on the NBC station in St. Louis.
