The Braille Monitor,  December 2001 EditionThis is a line.

The shape of an evergreen tree picked out in vertical strings of lights reaches from the floor of the Skydeck to the roof of the building. A two foot star adorns the tip of the tree.

The tree of lights on the Skydeck at the National Center for the Blind is visible from I-95. When it was constructed for the first time in December of 2000, we were unable to find a star large enough for the top. Mr. Ruff of the NFB maintenance staff set about to make an appropriate star and string it with lights. He presented the finished product to President Maurer. Then Mr. Ruff, Mr. Ray, and Mr. Gashel assembled the display of white lights.

Again this year we wish our readers the peace and joy of this season and the courage to shine with hope no matter how dark the night. Happy Holidays.
