CLAREMORE, Okla.  — The Claremore Support Group for the Blind and Visually Impaired will host a holiday party for anyone with visual disabilities and their families from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, December 15.

The party will be held at the Claremore Community Center, 2301 N. Sioux.

The support group will serve lunch with coffee and soft drinks. Attendees can also win door prizes.

Charley Tipps, a longtime friend and retired Services for Blind and Visually Impaired program supervisor, his wife Ruthie Tipps and friend Kenny Blair will provide musical entertainment at the December 15 party.

SBVI is a division of the Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation Services.

Tipps, who is blind, encouraged Bolton and co-founder Sue Speer to start the Claremore Support Group for the Blind and Visually Impaired in 2008.

Rehabilitation of the Blind Specialist Debbie Eagle, who is the current SBVI liaison to the group, will attend and answer questions about agency services that help people reach employment and personal independence goals.

Group Coordinator LaVinda Bolton said, “We want to get our support group back together to celebrate the holidays and have some fun, but we are also looking for volunteers who can coordinate regular meetings in the future.”
