Celebrating White Cane Day

Greetings one more time. See, this is what happens when I go awhile not being able to put my thoughts and ideas on the web, :) I've been assigned the task of developing a website for the Austin celebration of White Cane Day! This is one assignment that I'm embracing. I've already got some good introductory content on the site, including a description of White Cane Day, information on ordering T-Shirts, a list of participating agencies and groups, and more. Check it out and let me know what you think, either through comments on this entry or sending me an email through the site. Among other things, I was very pleased to get the domain of WhiteCaneDay.org for the site. I'll be going to the White Cane Day committee this Thursday and presenting a short piece on the site and opening it up to the committee for ideas. That will be fun, to stand up in front of the group, give my name and job title, and then to say something like, "I'm the webmaster for the WhiteCaneDay.org website." Should be fun! Incidentally, if you're out of town and want to order a T-Shirt, then you're certainly welcome to do so. Also, remember that this site is a work in progress and that it will be updated regularly as we get closer to the event, and perhaps even a few times afterward. If anything's not working as it should then let me know so I can correct it. I hope to put some pictures/graphics on there soon, and would appreciate any feedback on how those look. Us blind folk are good, but sizing pictures can be a challenge, :)

    Hi Wayne. My name is Jamie. I work at a state vocational rehabilitation center. I think that celebrating white cane day is one of the greatest things we are doing. This year we are even bringing in folks from out of state. As this event becomes more and more popular, I hope to see more out of staters participate in this important and meaningful event.
