Arlington Chapter

The Arlington Chapter spreads the Federation philosophy with a unique focus on guide dogs. Since several members use service animals, the chapter participates in activities with the local Guide Dogs for the Blind Puppy Club and collaborates with it for community outreach activities. The chapter presents information, writes names in braille and lets children pet their guide dogs at the Arlington Park Mall during October’s Meet the Blind Month. The Arlington Chapter presents information about blindness periodically at local businesses and health fairs.

Monthly chapter meetings are held the second Saturday of each month at the Lake Arlington Baptist Church. Members and guests are invited to join the chapter for refreshments and dinner at local restaurants after every-other chapter meeting.

Meeting Location: Lake Arlington Baptist Church at 2912 Little Road
Time: 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. on the second Saturday of each month
Chapter President: Holly McKnight, hollyandtyra@gmail.com

Notice:  In the month of March, the chapter will be deviating from its regular meeting schedule. Visitors are welcome to join the chapter for a brief meeting, on Monday, March 27, beginning at 11:30 AM. The venue for this meeting is the Division Street Diner, located at 1800 Division Street. Come and find out what the Federation is all about, while getting to know our members in the area. You are always welcome!
