LightHouse Krafters Korner Hangout
Second Saturdays of each month
Did you know there's a national network of crafters who are blind or have low vision out there, meeting up all the time by email and phone, to share, learn, and teach crafts of all kinds? We’re excited to be partnering with the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) Krafters Division to connect you to all the new crafting skills you could possibly want with a community that is just as excited about it as you.
LightHouse’s Krafters Korner hangout is free and crafters of all skill levels are welcome. Get answers to your crafting questions and guidance in learning new skills such as loom knitting, needle knitting, crocheting, origami and more. If you wish to register for membership in the NFB Krafters Division, LightHouse will cover half of your annual membership dues. San Francisco residents would pay nothing, thanks to a generous grant from the San Francisco Department of Disability and Aging Services.
RSVP to Serena Olsen at email@example.com or 415-694-7316.

EHC Give Back Summer Concert Series: Alumni Showcase Concert
This week’s Summer Concert Give Back Series, features many Enchanted Hills Camp Enrichment Area Leaders, currently and from the past four years. It will be a two hour concert featuring; Shane Dittmar, Derik Dittmar, Mariana Sandoval-Lintz, Joshua Lintz, Masceo Williams, Daniel Cavazos, Sky Mundell and Paul Day.
One of the featured performers, Shane Dittmar, is a musician, educator, and composer. He served for two summers as the Enrichment Area Leader at EHC, which he also attended for 6 years as a camper; graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and now teaches music at the Washington State School for the Blind in Vancouver, WA, where he lives with his wife, cat, and guide dog.
Chimehenge is an interactive community musical instrument of epic proportions. Created by the fanciful scientist/designers at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, It is composed of ten-foot tall chimes of various widths suspended on a frame that make musical tones when hit with mallets.
This interactive, audible sculpture will be installed in a glen in the woods on an offshoot of the main nature trail at Enchanted Hills Camp. Enchanting indeed!
Help us raise $25,000 for the surfacing, trail extension and installation of Chimehenge for our blind campers.

Support Enchanted Hills and say Cheers!
During the month of July, Stardust Winery in Napa will donate 20% of all purchases to LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired's Enchanted Hills Camp, the only camp west of the Mississippi dedicated to blind campers. Enchanted Hills provides a quintessential camp experience for blind youth to explore, thrive, and gain confidence. Unfortunately, the camp was badly damaged by the 2017 fires and is now being rebuilt thanks to contributions from community members like you.
Enjoy some of Napa’s most magnificent Cabernet Sauvignon and support EHC.
