We the members of the Blue Water League Of the Blind would very much like to Thank the following community and organization for the wonderful help they have given to the BWL in the past years. Without their help we couldn't be the organization that we are today. To everyone thank you from our heart.
To the Blue Water Area Transit: We would like to name all of the wonderful people that have helped us out but that would take a whole page. On that note, we would just like to thank all the staff and the bus drivers. Without the BWAT we (the BWL) could not go to our meetings or other places. We couldn't ask for a better transit system. We are very lucky to have one of the most efficient transit systems here in Port Huron. Thanks to Jim Willson and his staff.
We would like to Thank the Port Huron Host Lion's Club: The Port Huron Host Lion's has been a part of the Blue Water League of the Blind for many, many years. They put on a picnic for the members of the BWL every year. They also put on a wonderful Christmas party with wonderful gifts. The Lion's help to pay for the members that go to the winter camp for a weekend in February. The Lion's will help people that have a hard time getting eye glasses and hearing aids. The Lion's will try to help when they can. We know that the lion's will always be a part of the BWL, and again Thank you Port Huron Host Lion's Club.
This Thank You goes out to the Saint Clair County United Way:
Without their wonderful help to the Blue Water League of the Blind we would not be able to go to winter camp or to our state convention or trips to Lansing or other places. Thank you United Way for your generous gifts to us at the BWL,
