Accessible World is so very pleased to welcome yet another new program to our 
Family. "You and Your Guide Dog," hosted by Robert and Ruth Ann Acosta.

Robert has used 9 wonderful guides and Ruth Ann is working with her fourth new 
guide, Egan.

What we would like to accomplish is to provide people from all of the guide dog 
schools in the United States and from other countries of the world with the 
opportunity to join us in our audio community room in order to talk about our 
experiences with our great dogs.

At our first meeting, we shall get acquainted and plan an agenda. In other 
words, what would guide dog users like to hear and talk about.

We shall meet on the second Wednesday evening of each month commencing in 
April. Please see date and time information below. If anyone needs assistance 
in accessing our room, including the downloading of our simple Software 
program, please feel free to call or write to Robert Acosta.
