March 14 – Elaine Britt – LED Light Bulbs

 Elaine has had vision problems for a number of years.  She has just recently learned about the benefits of LED lights that use 1/10 of the electricity and put out almost twice the light.  She will have lights at the meeting to demonstrate.  She will have a few for purchase.  They are purchased through Amazon and she will give you the link so that you can purchase them for yourself.

Alana Walker – Andalusia-Skillability Day Report.  

There were 4 women from Montgomery who traveled to Andalusia on Feb. 28 for Skillability Day.  Alana will share what she learned. We will be meeting in Room 23, which is our regular meeting room. 

April 11 – Lillie Henderson Harold, Speaker

On March 6, 1976, at the age of 10 Lilly fell sick.  She was rushed to the hospital in Troy where polio was diagnosed. She never walked again.  Today she breathes 24-7 via a ventilator connected by a tracheotomy tube.  In spite of her handicaps, Lilly graduated Magna Cum Laude from Troy State University and received a Master’s degree in Education (emphasis on Rehabilitation Counseling) from University of Alabama at Birmingham.  She was crowned Miss Wheelchair Alabama 1980-81.   She will talk about accessibility issues and share stories from 2 of her books (Memories to Cling & Aydenland).
