Peel into Romney
 
Do you like the fall foliage in the mountains of West Virginia? Do you like homemade apple butter, freshly made apple dumplings, or good, fresh apples? If any of these things sound appealing to you, consider coming to Romney and attend the Mountain State Council of the Blind convention.  Our 2017 state convention will take place Sept. 29 through Oct. 1 at the South Branch Inn, located approximately 5 miles east of Romney.  Hotel room rates are $91 per night plus tax, and include a continental breakfast.  You may make your hotel reservations now by calling (304) 822-2444.  In order to get the group rate, mention that you are with MSCB.
 
The convention committee is hard at work planning a fun-filled and informative program.  Some potential activities include: an escape room, an introduction to yoga, a technology expo, updates from agencies providing services to West Virginia residents who are blind or have low vision, our annual auction, and experience some Hampshire County history.  There is also a very good possibility that, for the first time, we will be awarding the Anna L. Hunt Memorial Academic Scholarship.
