The South Central Association of the Visually Impaired (SCAVI) meets the first Monday of the month at 9:30 a.m. at Bedford Free Methodist Church in the Fellowship Hall in the basement, 630 R Street. In June we have our annual picnic and December is our Christmas party. Our meetings usually consist of presentations and discussion that relate to people who have a vision loss. Occasionally the members will demonstrate new technology or techniques they use in their homes. Anyone with a visual impairment or who has an interest in the area of vision loss is invited to our meetings. For more information call Regina Vonderhaar at 317-709-8159.
