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.

April Meeting of SCKCB Cancelled

The April Meeting of the SCKCB has been cancelled due to coronavirus concerns. The SCKCB urges our members to take all necessary precautions to protect themselves from this highly infectious virus. We expect that the June meeting will be held according to the normal schedule, but please watch this site and our mailing list for further updates as they occur.

Election for Vice President and Secretary

During our February meeting, we held elections for the offices of Vice president and Secretary. Richard Lindsey was re-elected for another term as Vice President and Diane Oliver was elected as Secretary replacing Rhonda Pennningcuf. We welcome Diane to her new post and look forward to her contributions.

We would also like to express our appreciation Rhonda, our outgoing Secretary. We thank her for her service and look forward to her continued participation in the organization.

Dues Note

The SCKCB annual dues are due once again. Please be sure to have your dues of $10.00 in by March 31st. Note that this year all of your dues will remain with the SCKCB. In past years, some of your dues have gone to the ACB to maintain our members "at large" status with that organization. For those of you who wish to continue being "at large" members of the ACB, you will have to make separate arrangements to pay the ACB dues.
