Brief Description

We are a 501-C3 nonprofit organization open to anyone sighted, visually impaired, or blind and of any race, creed, or religion. We contact and meet with Tennessee legislators as well as send Delegates from MTCB to Washington to speak with our representatives regarding legislation that will impact the blind and visually impaired. Our endeavors include providing social and community opportunities such as sports and fitness, social events such as a picnic and a hayride, as well as cultural outings such as tours and theatre.

Every member has a voice, and we encourage members to attend meetings when possible and participate in all our efforts and activities that may be of interest. Our meetings are the second Saturday of each month unless otherwise notified at Dalewood United Methodist Church at 2300 Ridgecrest Drive from 10 a.m. until 12 noon.
