On behalf of the Cameron Park Lions Club, we wish to thank everyone in the community for their support during our recent White Cane Days. The ongoing support of the community allows our club to continue providing assistance to those who are visually impaired and do not have the means to obtain vision care. Requests for assistance have increased this past year because of the ongoing economic problems.
We also thank Bel Air and Safeway markets for allowing our club to place tables at each of their store entrances. This provides us with visibility without interfering with your daily business. The stores’ efforts in supporting our community event are really appreciated.
We especially thank Guide Dogs for the Blind for bringing their volunteers, dogs and puppies to our event. Having the dogs and puppies at the event gave the public an opportunity to see dogs in their various stages of training to become guide dogs or service dogs. The dogs were a great addition to our event. The volunteers were very informative and able to answer questions about the dogs and their training. We really appreciate having them at the event.
As in the past, donations from White Cane Days are used exclusively for eye exams, eyeglasses and any other related needs of the visually impaired and are used exclusively within the local community.
The continued support of the community, Bel Air, Safeway and Guide Dogs for the Blind is very much appreciated.
