Good morning all,
This is a reminder about this Thursday's White Cane Day/DBS 75th anniversary
event. There is still time to RSVP.
The Division of Blind Services, in partnership with the Florida State
University College of Education, will host its White Cane Day and 75th
Anniversary Ceremony and Expo in Tallahassee on Thursday, October 13 from 9
a.m.-5 p.m. Join us for educational sessions, business networking opportunities
and an exhibit expo. The full schedule of events is attached.
White Cane Day is a time to celebrate the abilities and successes achieved by
blind people in a sighted world. The day is also intended to educate the public
of the White Cane Law, which requires motorists to stop when a pedestrian
carrying a white cane or accompanied by a guide dog is crossing a street.
The 75th Anniversary and White Cane Safety Day Ceremony, beginning at 11 a.m.,
will feature current and former DBS client testimonials, as well as guest
speakers who have been influential throughout DBS' history.
We will also recognize the latest recipients of the Division's "Successful 75"
Award. This initiative honors individuals, organizations and businesses that
have remained steadfast in the advancement of independence for persons who are
blind and visually impaired.
The ceremony and expo will be held at Florida State University Student Services
Building - Room 203 (874 Traditions Way, Tallahassee, Florida). Reserved
parking will be available in the Woodward Garage, located at 1198 N. Woodward
Ave. (five-minute walk from event venue). Refreshments will be provided. See
