New Bern Chapter – Hearing Loss Association of America

The New Bern chapter of Hearing Loss Association of America will meet on May 22 at 11am at 1325 McCarthy Court Independent Living Apartments.

Our speaker is Karen Caputo on the Disabilities Act.

Have you ever attended a movie or play where you could not hear the performers? Perhaps afterward you told the manager you could not hear and his reply was that he had no assistive listening devices ADL. He could only turn up the volume and suggested you sit in the front row.  If so Karen is asking for a written report which she can submit to a Disabilities Rights group in Raleigh.

Do come join our group for new information and fellowship. We will have a 50/50 raffle.  Coffee is available. I still collect old hearing aids for recycling. If you have any questions please call Althea Uhlig at 252-633-9471.

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
