Blind Beauty Issue #12 | Rose-Ann Lyons

Description is in the body of the post.

“I walked in, was approached, and welcomed by such warm, kind, people.  I relaxed!  No more panic!  The “fun”,  the “joy”, the “excitement” began!!  When I arrived, I was asked what I wanted to do.  I have never curled before so I said I was there to learn to Curl with the Curling Team for the Blind.”
