Deaf Event Paper For my Deaf Event I decided to attend the Silent Dinner at Valley Ranch Barbeque this past Tuesday April 27th, 2010 with my fellow classmate a best friend, Amber Cullens. A few days leading up to the event I was completely nervous I didn’t know what to expect. With only being a beginning sign language one student I was afraid that I would freeze up or sign something that would be offensive or make me look stupid. When we got to Valley Ranch the dinner had already started so we got in line and ordered our food. We then took our seats in the separate banquet type room they put us in for the silent dinner. Everything was so overwhelming at first, everyone was signing so fast we couldn’t keep pace and didn’t want to be rude by asking for help. Thankfully we weren’t alone there were fellow other Lone Star Students there along with High School students. Even Leyel Hudson attended the event which made things even more comfortable for us having a teacher we know around to assist us if needed any help. I can’t believe I stressed so much beforehand about attending, the Houston Deaf Community was very welcoming and helpful when we would sign with them. They made sure to try and go slower for us and some even helped by writing things down on paper so we could keep up. My favorite thing about the event was not just meeting Deaf parents, but the children of Deaf Parents. I met a young 8 year old boy and his older sister who was 12. They have not only learned English but also Sign Language so they can communicate with their parents. They were truly a great inspiration to be around. Attending this Deaf Event has inspired me to attend more not just while I’m enrolled as a student at Lone Star but on my own time. Currently because of attending this event I’m making it my goal to bring Deaf Events to my job, McAlister’s Deli. Overall the experience was one I’ll never forget for the rest of my

My experience at saddleback bowling lanes
As part of our assignment David and I went to a deaf event at Saddleback Lanes.
As I arrived at saddleback bowling lanes I was feeling a bit nervous and scared thinking how everyone else was going to know more than me at sign language. Once I was there, I got to meet some of my classmates, they were really nice and friendly. We were practicing our sign as we got to know each other. We helped each other out and I felt better because we were all in the….
I attended my first deaf event at the local Starbucks in Sea Cliff Village in Huntington Beach on November 16th. My experience was defiantly worth remembering and was quite enjoyable. Just approaching the door and seeing through the windows the hearing and the deaf practice and communicate with each other was inspiring. I was a bit apprehensive and nervous to strike up a conversation but next thing I knew I was being welcomed with warm hugs and loving smiles….

Deaf Cultural Event
In Thursday October 20, 2011 I attended a High Desert Association of the Deaf Calendar Event. When I arrived, what I observed were 2 separate large table groups who seem to be divided. This situation appeared to be very strange.
The first tables set about 10 to 15 students who I thought were from the Deaf community. I notice these students were signing amongst themselves. As I walked past….
The first event that I attended was a Starbucks Coffee Night in Pasadena. It was on April first on a Saturday. I arrived at 7:30pm and left at 8pm. There were a lot of people that attended but not all of them were there for the event I believe that there were around twenty five people that attended the event. Overall the event was as described a coffee night, many of the people had been there before and would get in groups. Some would sit down but others would chat while standing up. I thought that….

State University Northridge. This event was a great experience and really interesting to know.

AS 101 12:15- 1:20
Excited, I was truly excited because I’ve always wanted to visit a Deaf school and today was the day I would be visiting the Pennsylvania school for the Deaf (PSD). A school located in the suburban neighborhood of 100 West School House Lane and there we were welcomed! Our tour guide was all smiles as we entered the visitor center full of amazing architecture and beautiful showcases of student work hanging….
Community Involvement 2
On April 3, I attended the Deaf Idol event put on by ASL students for the Deaf community.
Like with most Deaf events, I was nervous about going so I didn’t want to walk in without the friends I was meeting there walking in with me. As we entered I not only saw a lot of signing but I heard a lot of conversation and people casually talking. This comforted me a little as I paid and took the program.
This event by-passed my expectations. There were so many people; almost….
2017 I attended a dinner at Case Martinez along with the deaf community. Thank you for allowing us to have this time out of class for extra credit. Unlike, my other experience at Pie Fie I was not able to sit at the same time with the rest of the group due to the fact that I got off of work until 5:20 & this event started at 5:30. During this experience I was able to observe a lot. The waitress as Case Martinez have menu cards made for the deaf community. The waitress handed out note cards with the….
The third Deaf event that I attended was an interpreted church service at New Venture Christian Church on April 17th and I attended this event for over an hour and a half. I have attended New Venture Christian Church since I was eight years old and within the last four or five years we have gained a few Deaf members of our congregation as well as an interpreter. When I found out about this assignment I immediately knew that I wanted to closely observe the signed church service. When I arrived at….
