Our next meeting will be our picnic Saturday, June 11 at 12:00 P.M. in the enclosed shelter house at Thornton Park in Bedford. SCAVI will furnish the meat, drinks and paper products. Members are encouraged to bring a side dish or dessert. Guests are always welcome.

If you'd like to take part in the game, bring a "white elephant" prize in a sack. This could be anything gently used or new.


There are no June birthdays.


Recently with the help of the wonderful folks at Copy Trolley here in Bedford we had 500 new brochures printed. Distributing these is a great way to both increase our membership as well as helping visually impaired people learn about what we do. These are helpful to individuals as well as organizations because often people with vision loss do not know where to go for help. Many people have friends or family members needing this type of assistance. That is in short what we do. To obtain brochures, reach us at the above contact information. We are always happy to help.


Many pharmacies today provide some type of accessible prescription label, unfortunately not many people are using them. End-Vision America needs to hear from you! Even if your pharmacy does NOT offer ScripTalk they will help you get set up with the option your pharmacy provides.

1. Reach out to End-Vision America by calling 800-890-1180 or emailing customerservice\@envisionameric 2. Tell them what pharmacy you use

3. Let them do the rest! They will help you get set up with the option that is provided OR they will contact your pharmacy to see if they will provide ScripTalk to you. 4. ALL of these options are FREE to you

It is common that your pharmacy staff will not be aware of the options available. End-Vision America will take the frustration out of getting set up!
