At the meeting of the National Federation of the Blind, President Susan Stanzel of the Kansas affiliate, will also demonstrate a new reading machine. Sighted persons who are friends and family of those who are blind and visually impaired are most welcome to come to the meeting and join the chapter. The article in the August 11th issue of this newspaper, gives a perfect example of how the federation helps blind and visually impaired children and adults learn to live full, productive lives despite what some would call "limitations."
