Events

Meet the Blind Month

Meet the Blind Month is our nationwide campaign to increase awareness of, and support for, the National Federation of the Blind (NFB). During October, the members of our affiliates, chapters, and divisions spread the message that blind people can live the lives we want by conducting a variety of outreach activities. These events create opportunities for people to meet the blind of their communities and to recognize that we are vital, contributing members of society.

The NFB-JCMO  2020 Meet the Blind Event

We have our annual Walk For Independence at the McKay Park Walking Track.  It will be held on Sunday, October 4th (with the 11th as a rain date), starting at 2 pm.  We will provide hot dogs, chips, and drinks for all that would like to come to walk with us or just visit. We usually set up at the picnic tables on the dam side of the lake and close to the parking lot.  Just look for the people with white canes and come introduce yourself. We have been enjoying this tradition since 1988 and sincerely hope you will join us for this 32nd anniversary.

Registration will be open from 2 – 3 pm.  Walkers may start walking at 2.  The event will end at 5:00 pm.  Be sure to turn in your completed registration form and Sponsor list with any funds collected so far.  Or,
