Barbara Cheadle, Editor
Southern hospitality, good food, good times, great shopping, historic attractions, music, and culture: Louisville—site of the 2005 NFB Convention (July 2 - 8)–has it all! Fourth Street Live! (above) is Louisville’s premier entertainment and retail district, located on Fourth Street between Liberty and Muhammad Ali Boulevards, in the heart of historic downtown Louisville. It is just a short walk from the Galt House Hotel, headquarters of the convention. For more information about what there is to do in the Louisville area, see the article about Louisville in the February 2005 issue of the Braille Monitor available under the “Publications” option on the NFB Web site at <www.nfb.org>.
We are pleased to announce that Future Reflections is now available at no charge. As you may know, Future Reflections has always been free to dues-paying members of the National Organization of Parents of Blind Children (NOPBC). A $15 subscription contribution was requested from non-members. However, we always gave complimentary subscriptions upon request—no questions asked, no strings attached, no invoice a year later. Now, you don’t have to ask; it’s FREE to all who want it! We will continue to provide readers with the opportunity to join the NOPBC and to make financial contributions.
Future Reflections is available in large print, on cassette tape, or by email, and is posted on the NFB Web site at <www.nfb.org/futref.htm>. Email subscription registration is available online at: <http:www.nfb.cal.org/listserv-signup.html>. Future Reflections is published by the National Federation of the Blind.
