National White Cane Safety Day Observed

WHITE CANE SAFETY DAY — Members of the Athol Lions Club observed National White Cane Safety Day October 15, 2016 to bring awareness to the importance of the white cane. Crossing the walk are, left to right — PKL Harry Haldt (blindfolded), Lion Charles Pierson III, King Lion Luanne Pierson, Lion Derrick Emond, Anthony Scerra (friend of the Lions), 2ndVP Charles Pierson Jr., and Lion Kim Emond. Also in the rear obscured from view are Lion Josh Grosky and Lion Mitch Grosky. Members also conducted trainings in the plaza, guiding blindfolded volunteers through a row of traffic cone obstacles. Other blindfolded volunteers were instructed in the use of the white cane in a test "run" along a sidewalk set with natural obstacles. Leaflets containing information about the holiday and related laws and fines were handed out, and some citizens stopped to chat with members about the Club's observance.
