Announcing the ACBM January party

Michael Malver

               The social committee of the American Council of the Blind of Minnesota cordially invites you to our January party.

Where: Country Inn & Suites

6003 Hudson Rd,


(651) 739-7300

When: Friday Evening, January 28.

Why: Because it seems like there are tons of social things to do in December, but few in January.

What: an evening of fun. Start with a pizza dinner from Green Mill, which will be provided in the meeting room where partiers  will gather for the evening. Afterword, bring games to share. Do you have Uno, Shut the box, die/card games? Would you rather play iPhone games such as DiceWorld? Perhaps game playing isn’t your thing, and you would prefer to just hang out with friends. The hotel has a pool, so people could gather there if  they prefer. It is an evening to get together, not talk about business, and enjoy each other’s company.

How much: The cost is $86  plus 7.25% tax for a hotel room should you choose to spend the night. When making your reservation. You need to state that you are with the  American Council of the Blind of Minnesota. If you do not, you will not get the $86 rate which is a special for ACBM members. In order to get this rate, you must make your reservation by January 1. Please rsvp to


So we know how many people to expect. We want to order the correct amount of pizza. And have enough snacks. $15 per person will be gathered at the door to defray the costs of the pizza dinner and snacks. We will be having a hospitality suite.


               Thanks go to the members of the committee: Jennifer Dubbin, Gary Boettcher and Colleen Kitagawa who did most of the heavy lifting. Janet Dickelman was a great source of advice and also did legwork to make this event possible. I hope to see you there.
