A Guest’s Perspective: 2015 Redefining Vision Luncheon

Submitted by Billie Klan

Each year I think that the events by The Lighthouse for the Blind, Inc. are pretty special — that they are continually improving. This year’s Redefining Vision Luncheon was my favorite!

While guests mingled, Lighthouse employees Peggy Martinez and Andrew Stauffer set a light tone for the opening of the Luncheon by providing musical entertainment. Other Lighthouse employees, David Jefferson and Robert Studebaker, gave very clear and thorough explanations of some of the hundreds of parts and products made at the Lighthouse. Our guests were surprised at how compact the entrenching tool became as shown by Pat Cashman — a delightful and the perfect emcee.

The true STARS were Shawn, Michelle, and Nathan.  We know there had to have been lots of preparation and work to make such a wonderful video.  It really shows the people behind the jobs at the Lighthouse.

We all come to this event knowing that we’ll have a lovely meal, meet other people excited and interested in the Lighthouse, and leave inspired.  This luncheon achieved all that and more. Congratulations!
