Save the Date!—All Women are invited to attend. Sunday, August 26th join us at 2:00 p.m. in Faith Hall. Barbara Zuwala will share her experiences teaching and rehabilitating the visually impaired.

Besides being blind herself, she rounds off her credentials with a Masters in Rehabilitation Teaching of the Adult Blind. As a traditional student she graduated from Marycrest College with a BA in teaching. Her experiences as a visually impaired teenager, adult, college student, wife and Mother prepared her for the job of bringing blindness related instructions to her clients in a 10 county area of the Quad Cities.
