Illinois Congressman Peter Roskam visited Horizons for the Blind recently. Congressman Roskam met with the Board of Directors and Executive staff and then toured the facility. The staff also met with the Congressman who fielded questions about social security, accessibility for people who are blind and visually impaired and a variety of other topics.
Horizons is excited to announce that it will be hosting the Hon. Peter Roskam of the US House of Representatives for a tour and town hall meeting on August 18. We were contacted by Rep. Roskam’s office, inquiring if we might be interested in such an event. Naturally, we are very thrilled. It is great to have an opportunity to show what we are all about at Horizons.
The congressman’s visit is scheduled to last about an hour. We will give him a tour of our facility and he will have the opportunity to meet with Camille and some board members. There will also be a full staff meeting, with opportunities for all to address questions to Rep. Roskam.
