February is National AMBUCS Visibility Month and in honor of that member Mike

AMBUCS is a national charitable service organization consisting of a diverse group of men and women dedicated to creating mobility and independence for people with disabilities. The Greater Champaign County Chapter has been making a difference in the Champaign County since 1981.
Please take a look at the many wonderful things we do, and consider becoming a member. We can always use the help, and we love meeting new people in the community. In fact, if you like, just drop by one of our lunch meetings to see what we are all about. We'll even spring for lunch!
The national organization was formed in 1922 in Birmingham, Alabama by William
L. White. He called it "American Business Club" which later evolved into
AMBUCS. The national organization has a new video with more of the history
and lots of information about the various AMBUCS projects:
