Our third 75 Days of Service call took place on May 6 and brought together a diverse group of Federationists from across the country. On this call, we talked about the projects we’ve been doing and gave pointers to people who were new to the effort and looking for some ideas to get them started. We were gratified to hear of the excitement of our fellow members and the enthusiasm shown not only by the division leadership, but also by a number of chapter members from across our great movement.

Editor's Note: Last year, the Community Service Division launched the 75 Days of Service campaign to encourage individuals and chapters to get involved in service projects in their local communities. In honor of the 2015 year-end recap recently posted to this blog and all of our accomplishments from last year, we are revisiting the 75 Days of Service with some as yet unposted recaps from the conference call series that went along with the campaign. For more information about the 75 Days of Service campaign and our kick-off call, check out this entry.

2015 was a busy year for the Community Service Division. It was a year of collaboration and creativity. It was a year that showed the type of great things we are capable of doing if we are open to try our best at something and see how far that something might take us.

Early on in the effort to organize the National Federation of the Blind Community Service Division, we established regular conference calls where a speaker would be invited and community service experiences would be shared. As of late, we have undertaken an effort to reestablish these conference calls. Sunday, October 18 marked the return of these calls, and our membership committee thought that it was only appropriate to discuss Meet the Blind Month. Below is a summary of the call as submitted by Kyra Sweeney, who serves on our membership committee and is vice president of the National Federation of the Blind of California Community Service Division.
