I hope everyone is enjoying this blast of winter… hahahaha lol. It’s time once again for our monthly GTT meeting.
This month, due to not being able to have Shaw in for a demonstration of the Blue Sky Box, we are going to have a recap and update of aps and services for i-phone and computer use. We will also update you on the shaw situation, and discuss how to proceed.
Who is invited? Everyone with an interest in technology and learning.
We have our meeting on the third Monday of every month from 10 A.M until noon.
Come and join us for this round-up of technology, I’m sure there will be something there for everyone.
Thank you for your attention

The CCB was founded in 1944 by a coalition of blind war veterans, schools of the blind and local chapters to create a national self-governing organization. The CCB was incorporated by Letters Patent on May 10, 1950 and is a registered charity under the provisions of the Income Tax Act (Canada).
The purpose of the CCB is to give people with vision loss a distinctive and unique perspective before governments. CCB deals with the ongoing effects of vision loss by encouraging active living and rehabilitation through peer support and social and recreational activities.
CCB promotes measures to conserve sight, create a close relationship with the sighted community and provide employment opportunities.
The CCB recognizes that vision loss has no boundaries with respect to gender, income, ethnicity, culture, other disabilities or age.
The CCB understands in many instances vision loss is preventable and sometimes is symptomatic of other health issues. For the 21st century, the CCB is committed to an integrated proactive health approach for early detection to improve the quality of life for all Canadians.
As the largest membership organization of the blind and partially sighted in Canada the CCB is the “Voice of the Blind™”.
