Summer Pride – DeafBlind Style!

The Summer Holiday weekend is just around the corner, and we DID promise you we’ll come up with a great idea for our annual summer LeCOBDA gathering.  Promises are not made to be broken, so here it is:

On Saturday, July 23, LeCOBDA is proud to join the Chicago Disabiity Pride Parade.   This parade will walk from Harold Washington Library in downtown Chicago to the Richard M. Daley Plaza.    Vice President Jason Salerno is already hard at work designing an amazing tactile banner that is sure to make you all PROUD to be DEAFBLIND!

The parade starts at 11 a.m.    After the parade, we will walk over to Millenium Park for our very own special LeCOBDA Picnic.   A picnic in one of the greatest parks of Chicago.

Food and drinks will be given to all DeafBlind and their SSPs free.   This picnic is family forcused, so please feel free to invite friends and family to join you and celebrate with all of us the wonderful summer weather amongst great friends and social activity.

For guests, we ask only a $5 donation to help defray the cost of our picnic.

Are you an awesome activities planner?  Want to join the team in planning fun activities in the park?   Email us and let us know.    And we encourage everyone and their SSPs to explore the fascinating statues and monuments in Millenium Park.

We will send another email next week with exact meeting place and pickup address information for you.    If you are planning to come to the parade and picnic, please send an RSVP to and let us know if you have any special dietary needs.

Can’t wait to see you all.  This is going to be so much fun!   Stay tuned for exact address information next week, and again, don’t forget to send an RSVP email!
