May 1st will be our last at the present location.
On June 16, 20016 we received the following email from Tracy Cole.
Good Afternoon, All:
I regret to inform the SCKCB that Disability Resources has been told by Vocational Rehabilitation that its contract with them has been terminated as of August 1, 2016. We will be closing our doors for good July 31, 2016. It is with heavy heart that I inform everyone that we will be losing our meeting place. (I, personally, will continue with my membership and will help out as I can where ever and whenever we find a place to continue meeting.) Please pass this distressing news to those who don't subscribe to the newsletter.
It has been a great pleasure for us at DRI to host the quarterly meetings of SCKCB. May your group continue on with your good work and remember us, for we will not forget you. God Bless and Amen.

On June 17, 2016 President Ron Milliman posted to the email list.
Tracy, this is very sad news because Disability Resources served such a much needed purpose, helping people with disabilities in the greater Bowling Green area, and also because of the jobs that will be lost with the closing of Disability Resources.
As for a meeting place for the South Central Kentucky Council of the Blind, it is a huge disappointment, but we will find a new location for our meetings. As I sit here, I have absolutely no idea where. So, if you, or anyone, has a recommendation, please pass it along to me.
President, South Central Kentucky Council of the Blind.
