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.
This year we will have three events!
Tuesday, October 17 at Eustis City Hall, 10 N. Grove St., Eustis - sponsored by Carolyn Maimone
Wednesday, October 18 at Clermont City Center, 620 W. Montrose St., Clermont - sponsored by Community Foundation of South Lake
Thursday, October 19 at Beacon College, Burbank Hall, 118 E. Main St., Leesburg - sponsored by Beacon College
TIME: 10-11:15 a.m. approximately
PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED—SPACE LIMITED!
RSVP: by October 11 using the form below or to Shelly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Attendees will be taught how to be a safe human guide and then you will be paired 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!
