Hello Sila and all, I would like to second everything you said.I was so happy to see such a wonderful turn out and would like to personally thank everyone who came and took part in our community White Cane Event. I would love to see this event happen again next year and see many more folks from the blind and visually impaired community come out and join us.
What a wonderful day we had. Again thank you to everyone who came out. Bright Blessings to all, Toni Original message:
Today, the Tallahassee Council of the Blind gathered with the local chapters of the National Federation of the Blind, Tallahassee Lions, Division of Blind Services and the Lighthouse of the Big Bend to raise public awareness and educate folks about our needs and concerns. It was like a mini-festival with t-shirts, homemade dog biscuits and various other items for sale as well as vision screenings available. The fall weather was beautiful. Several groups of cane users and dog guide handlers walked around Lake Ella, many wearing their snazzy White Cane t-shirts, (black with "Obey White Cane Safety - It's the Law! on the front and Close Your Eyes... Now Cross the Street on the back and depicting a white cane as well). Don't worry, if you weren't there and didn't get one of these t-shirts, TCB still has them available at $15.00. (Contact me off list if you are interested in purchasing one. I can not express how proud of everyone I am and how happy it makes me to see our organizations working in partnership for the betterment of ALL blind people! Way to go Tallahassee Blind Community folks!!! Lets do it again next year, ok?Respectfully and proudly! Sila
