Tables will be set up near the walk routes, where we will be handing out information on the White Cane Law, the new Pedestrian Safety Law nd various consumer groups, service and governmental agencies.

We are expecting several local mayors, local politicians and media to attend.

Proclamations for White Cane Awareness Dy and Pedestrian Safety will be read from the Cities of Daytona Beac, Volusia County and neighboring towns.

Two of our members, who are legally blind, have been ht by the vehicle in the past.

We need to heighten the publics awareness of pedestrians, particularly those with visual and physical impairments, and te need for drivers to be constantly vigilant and respectful of the pedestrians need to cross streets.

The larger the group, the more impact we will make.
