Summer 2004 Newsletter

Dear Friends,

As some of you may know, DateAble is going through some changes.  We will still exist but are merging the DateAble Washington membership with DateAble International.  This is an exciting time because not only will you have the opportunity to meet people in the Washington, DC area, you have the opportunity to make new friends from around the country.  DateAble Washington held a Town Meeting on June 24, 2004 to outline the new procedures and membership features.  Please read the minutes from the meeting in this issue of the newsletter.  Of course, if you have any questions, please contact me at the DateAble office or by email.

This is a unique opportunity for all of us to move forward as an organization and as friends.

Town Meeting Minutes

A Town Meeting was held for DateAble Washington members on Thursday, June 24, 2004.  Executive director Robert Watson led the meeting and discussed the changes that will be occurring over the next few months within DateAble.  Bonnie, DateAble Washington Office Manager and Matchmaker, created minutes, or meeting notes, of the event.  Thank you to those members who attended the meeting.

Hireabilities aims to help people with disabilities who have gone to college or beyond to attain their goals for meaningful work, and it does this through mentoring, networking with employers, and advocacy.  The organization is most in need right now of people who would like to mentor, but people who would like to assist Hireabilities in another capacity are also welcome.  Hireabilities encourages those who have given up on finding work out of frustration to sign-up to be mentored, even if they've been out of school and unemployed for many years.  The organization primarily operates in cyberspace and can be visited at
