The Woman’s Club of Minneapolis hosted a spring luncheon for clients of Vision Loss Resources on May 7.
The Woman’s Club of Minneapolis has been involved with present-day Vision Loss Resources from its founding as the Minneapolis Society for the Blind. On March 14, 1914, the Woman’s Club gave its first annual luncheon for visually impaired people; Helen Keller was the special guest, and a group of philanthropists were inspired to create it. This year’s luncheon is the 101st annual.
This year, the attentive members of the club and Vision Loss Resources volunteers greeted guests and escorted them to lunch, where they enjoyed a delectable meal. David captivated the room with his singing, while Bruce delighted them at the piano. The crowd gave them a standing ovation and called for more.
As guests reluctantly left, each was offered a geranium. Vision Loss Resources staff members were at the ready with umbrellas, to keep guests dry as they departed.
Vision Loss Resources thanks the Woman’s Club for this successful day, and looks forward to the event in 2016.
