AT 7:00 P.M. The banquet will feature an inspiring keynote address from our national representative, Amy Buresh, who will no doubt remind us why we are members of this dynamic and action-oriented organization with its positive philosophy.

The National Federation of the Blind of Minnesota knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
