White Cane Day

Posted on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 1:04 am

In honor of White Cane Day, join us for the annual Close Your Eyes event. During this eye-opening hour, you will briefly don a blindfold and acquire first-hand knowledge of the abilities of our neighbors who are blind or visually impaired.
Attendees will be taught how to be a safe human guide and then you will be paird up (so bring a friend or co-worker along!). One person on each team will be blindfolded and assignments will be given to complete a task with no vision, then you switch places. Teams will be expected to walk to various locations nearby within 4-5 blocks. Shoes for safe, comfortable walking a must!
Join us for this event at Eustis City Hall on October 17 starting at 10 a.m. Pre-registration required – space limited. RSVP by October 11 at
