Wolfle Elementary student receives new braille tablet from Noon Club

We're thrilled to pay for a Braille tablet for an elementary school student in North Kitsap! President Steve Calhoun presented Emily Batchelor of Hansville with a check for $5,495 for the tablet at our Sept. 13 meeting. Mel Knittel, right, is the secretary/treasurer of Kitsap Lions Low Vision Support Group, which gave $2,000 toward the tablet. Poulsbo Noon Lions contributed $3,495.

"This will open all kinds of doors for her," Emily said. The tablet will receive emails, read them to the girl... she can write and use spell check, etc. It will last throughout the girl's K-12 school years.
