Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind is hosting an event at the state capital for the community and families with students who are blind or visually impaired on October 11 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. “The event will have a historic capitol theme and will be held in the Hall of Governors. State officials and families will have the chance to experience what it is like to have a variety of visual impairments, including blindness. People who are sighted can even get in on the fun, and with a blindfold, they too can attack the mobility challenges and orientation activities. “We’ll have entertainment, exhibits, and we won’t just be entertaining the crowds, the crowds don’t just watch. They dive right in. This event is huge, it means a lot to our students. The crowd gets bigger every year,” shared Robbin Clark, the coordinator of the event for the Utah School for the Blind.
Hundreds of students, their parents, and friends participate in the event. Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind provides outreach programs in the local schools throughout the entire State of Utah.
Please come join us tonight!
