  • Serena’s homemade applesauce for a snowy spring Saturday

    Believe it or not, the forecasts were correct, snow came in Friday night and is still falling Saturday morning of the last weekend in April. So here’s a warm thought. Serena made applesauce from scratch on Thursday in Home Management – peeling, coring, chopping, cooking and putting the mixture through the food processor. She’s got…


  • Just can’t stop makin’ those drops – Congrats C.G.!

    We have a lot of students nearing the completion of their training programs at the Center, and that always means a steady stream of drops and support drops each week. On Wednesday, C.G. did her final and independent drop, getting back to the Center in no time, even though she naturally had no idea where…

    Here’s a pic of some of our seniors at Chili’s last Saturday, after attending the audio-described performance of “Mama Mia” at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. The Seniors used it as a fund-raiser, raising over $200. They keep a small donation fund going to help out with the expenses of various Senior activities…

  • Congratulate Courtney, she completed her drop this morning!

    She had great weather, and more than a little New Jersey attitude when Steve told us at announcements she was going on her drop this morning. She still had that attitude when she got back after only an hour. “I think I spent more time waiting for the light rail than anything …,” she commented.…


  • Braille in the Great Outdoors

    Five people around a picnic table, one reading Braille aloud to the others.

    The weather’s been great, so Jen took her Braille classes outside one day last week. They took turns reading aloud from a Braille book. Can’t think of a more relaxing way to learn the critical skills of literacy for the blind!
