Louis kickin' back and chillin'
Every organization needs a mascot. Ours is a blind teddy bear named Louis in honor of Louis Braille and made by Sue Robinson, who makes cute teddy bears and other beautiful artistic items.

Louis Braille was born in France in 1809 and blinded at age 3 by an accident. He invented the braille system of writing between the ages of 12 and 15. He is our Mascot's namesake.

Our Next Meeting

The SCKCB will have our regular bi-monthly meeting on Sunday, December 2nd at 1:30 PM . The meeting will be held at the Neighborhood & Community Services Building, located at 707 E. Main Ave., Bowling Green. This meeting will be our annual Christmas dinner, so no business will be transacted. See our Meetings page for more details. Just follow East Main to the top of what is commonly referred to as "Hospital Hill." There is a large parking lot on the left side of the building below the street level. The entrance to our meeting room is accessible from this lower parking lot level. Check out our meetings page for specific driving directions and Google Maps routing from your location.

Donato's Pizza Non-Profit Night

On October 24th, the SCKCB was hosted at Donato's Pizza for their Non-Profit night. We met the minimum of 20 receipts turned in during the evening, and so will be receiving 10% of the profits from Donato's for the night. Thanks to everyone who attended this great fund raiser and a special thanks to Donato's Pizza for their sponsorship. Check out the pictures on our activities page.

SCKCB Bake Sale a Success

The SCKCB held a bake sale on October 14th, 2018 at the Walmart on Walton Avenue. Despite the poor weather, we had a great turnout, and raised a tidy sum for the organization.
