WHERE: Golden Flame Restaurant, 8630 Fenton Street, Silver Spring MD.
TRANSPORTATION: If you are using Metro Access, many of us schedule our ride to depart around 8:30 pm to 9:00 pm and we all hang out together.
This monthly meeting is definitely not a meeting to be missed! As our speaker we have invited Brandon Cox from the Columbia Lighthouse to speak about the new "Narrative Mapping" which is being introduced to the Metro system in the next few weeks. This new system will be introduced first to11 stations prior to the entire system including the new Silver Line.
What is it? As a blind or partially sighted person or even deaf blind person this Narrative Mapping is for you. Never again will you wonder did I enter the station at the correct end and go to the right escalator to Silver Spring when I meant to go towards Shady Grove. Where is that elevator anyway? Brandon Cox and his new Narrative Mapping will answer your questions.
If you have any questions about the meeting please call Cindy LaBon at 301-990-1435. If you have any friends who might be interested please invite them along.
This is a joint project with the Columbia Lighthouse and the WMATA.
