Brumby's Coffee House and Pizzeria in Bellville was the setting for North East Ohio Deaf Community Chat's latest gathering Wednesday evening.

NE Ohio Deaf Community Chat is dedicated to bringing the deaf and hard of hearing together for monthly events to provide resources and activities for the Deaf in our local community.

March 13 through April 15 is National Deaf History Month. Presenter Rita Neal talked about the culture and rich history of the deaf community.

"It's very important for deaf people to have this kind of exposure. I want people who can hear to understand that we're just like them," Neal said.

"We're not different. We have a unique history, deaf inventors, deaf historians, all kinds of things. They were people who had ears not functioning but they're the same as everybody else," Neal said.

The group was started in January with just 20 people, but that number is increasing. NE Ohio Deaf Community Chat chairwoman, Jessica Fry, says the group provides an opportunity to promote the success of the deaf community.

"People come from all over northeast Ohio and look forward to getting together. This is a very unique setting, people who can hear, people who are deaf, we are very open and welcome everyone," Fry said.

"You don't have to be deaf, we want everyone to come, socialize and be a part of the group," Fry said.

The group and their video blog is on Facebook. For more information about the group and its monthly events visit www.facebook.com/communitychat2014?ref=stream.
