Blind community members were out at Walmart on North Avenue as part of White Cane Awareness Day.
Different members of a local group, Out of Sight, along with employees from the Division of Vocational Awareness Rehabilitation Office, made it their goal for a day to inform the public about being blind and how the blind face day to day challenges.
There were demonstrations of how to use a white cane, working with a guide dog, how to walk with a blind person and more.
Grand Valley residents who came out to learn more say it was a great way to educate the community, "I think it's great they're here for other people. I think it's important the entire community knows how other people live their lives, to be more considerate."
