Farewell April Showers!

by Cachet Wells

The first quarter has now washed away and it’s on to the second quarter of the year. Are you staying the course for goals that you set forth? Take note of the small milestones that you reach on the journey, for each one of them matter. There is so much beauty around us, so continue to celebrate Earth Day and be kind to our environment. Stay connected with the community on any of the daily calls. Plug in to what’s happening on ACB Media and hear the heart of the membership through the stories and information shared in the ACB Braille Forum, ACB Voices Blog or Dots and Dashes. We commend CBS again for its work in expanding description. Thank you to everyone involved in the Ukraine Benefit Concert. Find a need and get involve as we connect, collaborate, and continue to pave the way for those who are Blind and Visually Impaired.
