Hi Everyone,

If your interested in going to the Rochester Deaf Awareness Week (RDAW) coffee social this Thursday (April 24)  night at 7 pm to 10 pm.  Location will be at Rochester Recreation Club for the Deaf (RRCD), 1564 Lyell Avenue, Rochester, NY 14606.  Please come… we need some people to attend.  The flyer is in the below link:


For those who do not know, RDAW is made for the hearing community so bring your hearing friends.  The goal of RDAW is to educate the general population about the Deaf community.  At the same time, RDAW wants to to show how the information grows in the deaf community by words of the hands through events and friends.  This means we want to start spreading the words about our RDAW’s plans during the week of September 14 to 20, 2014.  The website can be found at the below link:


At the April 24th Coffee Social, please bring a few jokes to share in sign language.  This event will have an open mic for people to watch the signs.

At the same time, come hungry!  We will have food provided.  With additional, there will be a menu with sign language of how to sign the foods that are ordered.

Please bring your hearing and deaf friends to join this coffee social.  The admission is free.  Please come… come one… come all!!!

Thank you,
