Knoxville Tennessee’s Club VIBES In The News….

Our friend and co-founder of Knoxville, Tennessee’s Club VIBES, Sue Buckley, wrote to let us know they were back in the news again.  It was a very nice video report from local news station 10 WBIR that focused on a very special 15-year old volunteer tandem pilot, Fausto Crapiz.  You can find the video and a text version of the piece here: Teens Find Friendship On Tandem Bike.

You can find two previous blog entries on Club VIBES from October 2010 and July 2011 at the following links:

Club VIBES (Visually Impaired/Blind Enhanced Services) is a free mentoring service for visually impaired or blind youth and their parents/guardians residing in or around the Knoxville, Tennessee area. Established in November 2008, Club VIBES is a chartered not-for-profit organization registered with the state of Tennessee and Knox County.

Club VIBES is made up of a group of volunteers who care about visually impaired youth as they make the transition into an independent adult life. Through mentoring, these volunteers teach living skills and provide Club members with educational activities which model, develop, and reinforce social and leadership skills. Social outings and special events also are used as learning opportunities.

About TG

I've been around a bit and done a few things, have a couple kids and a few grandkids. I tend to be curmudgeonly, matter-of-fact and not predisposed to self-serving chit-chat. Thankfully, my wife's as nice as can be otherwise we'd have no friends. My interests are somewhat eclectic, but whose aren't?
