I came home after lunch so that we could make a deposit at the bank. I had an email from teh contracting officer from the pool as follows.
Good Afternoon Mr. Romey. My name is ??????. One of my responsibilities is to oversee our pool here at ??????. I would like to apologize for the incident that happened on July 12th. Upon further investigation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, we found out that it is acceptable for your dog to accompany you inside the pool area.
Score! I shouldn't be happy because this is the outcome that I expected, but it does make me feel good to help educate the workforce. I got a call from him shortly after receiving the email. I missed his call, but I'm sure I'll talk to him tomorrow. I think he was calling from the pool to tell me that all staff was made aware that I could go to the pool deck with Velvet, unhindered. Again, Score for guid dogs!
P.S. More blind people inprocessed into our center yesterday as interns. They don't work in mya rea, but some use JAWS so I will probably get an opportunity to help them later on, especially with the accessibility concerns we have with some of the systems that we use.
