Do you know a blind person and work with them on a daily basis? Or do you only occasionally encounter someone that is blind? Or maybe you have never met a blind person at all. In any case, you should consider joining us on an informative conference call that will help you to know what to do in various situations with a blind or visually impaired person.

For example, how does one guide a blind person when walking with them? How do you assist a blind person when having dinner with them? Is it OK to say, "did you see that"? These questions and many others will be answered in a conference call entitled: "Meeting, Working and Living With A Blind Person".

The call will be hosted by the St. Charles County Council of the Blind and will be held on Sunday evening, December 2nd at 7:00 PM. The number to call is 218-237-3840. When asked for the access code enter 140149 followed by the # sign.

This conference call is open to anyone that is interested in participating. So if you are sighted and just not sure how to react in a situation concerning the blind, please join us for this free conference call.

Don't be embarrassed when you meet a blind person and you're not sure what to do. Join us on this conference call and be informed and educated. We will open the phone lines for your questions at the end of our presentation.

There are a lot of misconceptions concerning the blind and visually impaired and hopefully this call will make you feel more comfortable the next time you meet a blind person.

You won't have to identify yourself on the conference so don't hesitate to call and join us.
