This is fantastic. Some of us have celebrated this day and this month so
long that we no longer bring the kind of enthusiasm you evidence. This is a
lesson to me which I will share with our affiliate.

Information and Agenda


When:  Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Time:    12:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.



This year's White Cane Safety Day will again focus on the rights of blind

comprehensive skills training for Department of Economic Security blind
consumers.  We begin at the Department of Economic Security, at Noon, which
is located at 1789 W. Jefferson in Phoenix.  Lunch will be provided by the
Business Enterprise Program Cafeteria Val's Get away. Prices for lunch is
$6.25 and includes sandwich (Turkey, ham, roast beef,) chips, cookie
condiments and bottle water.



After lunch, we will distribute informational material about the capacity of
blind people to parent effectively and how skills related training is
critical to successful employment and full participation in family and
community life.  



At 1:00, we will march several blocks to the Capitol building where the
governor's proclamation will be read by Senator Steve Farley.  The reading
of the proclamation will take place in the Arizona Senate Gallery followed
by remarks from various state Legislators.


If you wish to attend, please register by October 11th by sending an email

I look forward to seeing you there, and living the life you want.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back.
