Dinner, Meeting, Induction and Presenter
Annette Landes, from the Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind Early Years Literacy Program, was our guest speaker at the October 24th dinner/social meeting. During the meeting, Annette thanked the group for the generous on-going support QIFC has extended over the years. Since 2012, QIFC donations have allowed EYLP to purchase materials needed by deaf children and an alerting device for a deaf mother, a car seat for a two-year-old deaf boy, dinners for families attending events and offered additional support as needed.
The Early Years Literacy Program provides thematic-based literacy instruction integrating developmentally appropriate skills for infants through five years of age who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. For more information go to: http://www.csdb.org and search for Early Years Project.
IT WAS A FUN DINNER/SOCIAL MEETING
The dinner meeting included a wonderful meal, tables decorated in the spirit of Halloween, a guest speaker, and the induction of Debra Herrick, our newest member.
Shannon Richardson (President), Sue Morgan (Membership) and Nan Walters (Sponsor) inducted Debra Herrick into QIFC. Welcome Debra, we look forward to working with you as we offer our service to those in need.
A huge THANK YOU goes to Vicky Hansen for offering her festive home for the evening, and to Judi Robinson, Judy Warren, Jane Abels and Shannon Richardson for the delicious and festive meal. There is not a better restaurant in town!
