The Blind Telephone Network (dial-in)
Announcing the Blind Telephone Network 2024 program
The Blind Telephone network, originally founded by blind veterans, now is pleased to welcome all blind and low vision folks to join in phone calls will be held on Tuesday and Thursday of each week.
Tuesdays programs are what we call chit chat and chew the fat. During these sessions, most topics are acceptable; however, we refrain from discussing politics and religion. Prayer requests are acceptable, but will not be done during the call. This is a time for socializing, and sharing our experiences with blindness, in order to help others develop independence and self-confidence.
On Thursdays, we emphasize education, travel, technology, history, entertainment, and innovative role-models, etc.. These sessions will feature presenters on such topics as: Lewis and Clark expedition, Mt. Rushmore, railroad history and the mob museum in Las Vegas, Nevada.We encourage suggestions for topics or locations from our participants.
All sessions last for one (1) hour and start on time.
The call in number is: 605-475-5620, and the access code is: 3789127#. If you plan to save these numbers in your contacts, I recommend inserting two (2) commas between the main number and the access code.
Those wishing to receive an e-mail reminder for upcoming sessions or links provided by the presenter, should:
Send an e-mail to Doc Eudaly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put your full name, phone number, and email address in the body of your e-mail.
Calls for 2024 will begin on Tuesday, January 9.
For Thursday, January 11, our initial program will be on the FDR Memorial in Washington, DC. We hope to hear you on these free telephone calls, where you can both learn and contribute
On behalf of the founding members,
Douglas “Doc” Eudaly, PH,D
