More info about Beach Party

Good news, everyone!   We have more information about the upcomng CDBA Beach Party on August 12.   We did some careful research and visited locations to make sure we found a place that would be ideal for CDBA.   Here is the information now:

The CDBA 2017 Beach Party will be held at Montrose Beach in Chicago. The address is 350 W Montrose Harbor Drive.  Everyone is invited to the Beach Party.  We welcome family, friends, younggsters…. Everyone!

Each DeafBlind person and SSP will receive $10 toward their lunch meals.   Everyone who uses Paratransit will receive a voucher for the cost of their paratransit ride.

Please continue to read for all the important details:

WHAT TO BRING:

Bring your favorite beach towel, chair, swimsuit, and sunscreen.  And whatever else you feel you need, including your favorite beach pail and shovel to create your own sand castle.

FOOD:

Everyone who is DeafBlind or SSP will receive $10 cash to purchase your own meals.   Friends and family, we regret we are not able to afford to cover your expenses for food.

There are two restaurants on the beach.  One restaurant has good food at cheap prices, like hot dogs, polish sausages, and italian beef and you can easilya fford with drinks. If you prefer more fancy foods, you can go next door to another restaurant.  Anything above $10, you will need to pay out of your own pocket.

HOW TO GET THERE:

Parking is available and free at Montrose Beach.    If you are taking paratransit, please tell your driver to go to 350 Montrose Harbor Drive at Montrose Beach.   Someone will be there to meet you and guide you to the beach area.   If you are takingMetra to Chicago, and you wish SSP to meet you at the station, please notify us right away so we can make sure to send an SSP to meet you.

If you want your SSP to ride with you from Metra to Beach via Paratransit, be sure to tell Paratransit you are bringing a guest rider with you.   You will be reimbursed with vouchers for your ride.

WHAT TIME?:

The party starts at 11 a.m.   However, you can arrive earlier if you wish.  We will be done around 3 p.m.   Please make your arrangements with drivers according to this schedule.

SSP VOLUNTEERS:

As always, we welcome and deeply appreciate the support of SSPs and invite you to join in and volunteer to ensure our DeafBlind participants have a fun and safe experience.  And we promise you, SSPs, you will have fun too!

RSVP:

You are not required to RSVP.   However, if you need an SSP and if you want to reeieve $10 for your meals, you must RSVP by August 10 so we can make sure you have everything ready.
