The Iowa Department for the Blind (IDB) will host a celebration and open house on the afternoon of Tuesday, October 15, 2013 at its building in Des Moines. The White Cane Day Celebration will echo events around the country in honor of the simple, highly effective tool used by the blind and visually impaired to get around in their daily lives. The long white cane has also become an international symbol of blindness and White Cane Safety Day is a worldwide observance recognizing its importance.

The event is free and open to the public. Exhibits highlighting all of IDB’s services will be open at noon. Visitors are welcome to bring their lunch and spend time viewing the displays while meeting IDB staff. A program beginning at 1:00 p.m.
