No time to rest for NFBCO after #NFB15

Editor's Note: Many of us have just returned from our historic #NFB15 75th Anniversary convention in Orlando, where we broke the Guinness World Record for an umbrella mosaic as a way of celebrating. More than one hundred Colorado Federationists helped make up the 2480 record-breaking participants that spelled out our tag line, "Live the life you want." There's no time for rest though. Already two successful BELL Camps were held last week - in the north Metro area and in Colorado Springs - bringing Braille enrichment and fun to Colorado''s blind kids. Here are some events coming up in the next week.
