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 February Meeting

We had our February Meeting on the 4th of February, 2018. During this meeting, Our Vice President was re-elected to his post. In addition, Rhonda Pennycuff was elected to replace Anna Clouse as our secretary. Congratulations to Rhonda.

U.S. House Passes Changes to ADA

The United States House of Representatives has passed radical changes to the ADA over the objections of disability rights groups. See this Washington Post article for more details.

This bill will still need to be passed by the Senate before it goes to the President for his signature. Get in touch with our senators (Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul) to express your concern and urge them to vote against this piece of legislation.

Our Next Business Meeting

The SCKCB will have our regular bi-monthly meeting on Sunday, May 6th at 1:30 PM. The meeting will be held at the Neighborhood & Community Services Building, located at 707 E. Main Ave., Bowling Green. 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.
