Louis kickin' back and chillin'
Every organization needs a mascot. Ours is a blind teddy bear named Louis in honor of Louis Braille and made by Sue Robinson, who makes cute teddy bears and other beautiful artistic items.

Louis Braille was born in France in 1809 and blinded at age 3 by an accident. He invented the braille system of writing between the ages of 12 and 15. He is our Mascot's namesake.
