Welcome Current & New Guide Dog Users!

Linda Becker President and Anchorage My name is Linda Becker and my guide dog's name is "Anchorage". I am honored to serve as your new President of O.C. GUIDEDOGS Alumni Chapter for the fiscal year 2015-2016. Being an avid guide dog user for the last 14 years, I've encountered many ways to challenge myself and my guide dog with travel experiences, previously working as an employee for GDB as an Outreach Alumni Representative in Orange County, and speaking engagement to business organizations and schools. I also teach a Sensory Awareness class at Anaheim Braille, organizing field trips for visually impaired and blind people, and facilitating Low Vision Support Groups in Orange County.

Our mission is to Create a Community, Support, Inform and Promote the use of Guide Dogs. This Mission has been my past, present and now future goal. I look forward to meeting and hearing from you as Chapter members throughout this new year and would especially want to hear your ideas, suggestions and fun ways that we all may enjoy OCGUIDEDOGS meetings. Check out our web site ocguidedogs.com that webmaster Wayne Heidle has created with beautiful blind friendly usage that will inform you about our events & meetings. We are also excited to have Carla Ross as Secretary, volunteering a third term and we welcome Cynthia Thacker as Treasurer this year. Please bring your family, friends and anyone you know that is interested in guide dogs and meet your fellow guide dog users . Refreshments will be served by invited OC Puppy Raiser Clubs so you will have the opportunity to pet their puppy's in training.

At our first 2015-2016 meeting on July 25th, we will have an excellent speaker as well. Her name is Deborah Sands, DJS Consultant Services - Owner/Founder 818) 535-4738. Speaker/Author/Service Animal Public Access Education Consultant/Dog Products www.celebrationofdogs.com, www.serviceanimaledu.com, Face book, Twitter, LinkedIn Come join us July 25 at the Anaheim Christian Reform Church, 530 Dale Ave., Anaheim, CA.
