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.

Elections Held on February 3rd via Zoom

On February 3rd, the SCKCB held its first bi-monthly meeting of the year via Zoom. During that meeting, Jim Thoune resigned as our president and Vice President Richard Lindsey assummed those duties until the end of Jim's term, which is up next year.

We thank the outgoing officers for their work for the organization and its members, and wish our new panel of officers well in their upcomming term.
