Subject:  Southern Deaf Showcase


Valerie,

I would like to make the list aware of a potentially new opportunity to
increase the awareness of SignWriting. This past weekend, the first
biennual (every two years) Southern Deaf Showcase debuted in Clearwater,
Florida. It will, hopefully, be there again next year and then every two
years after that - if current plans materialize. I asked for SignWriting
material at a few booths (Dawn SignPress was there) but got quizzical
looks. Hopefully, those looks will change by next year. ;-)

Information about this past showcase is still available at:
