WCB’s First Annual Picnic at the Community Universalist Congregation

WCB’s First Annual Picnic at the Community Universalist Congregation (www.cuucwp.org ) in White Plains

Great company, great weather, great food, fun games, and no ants! It was a perfect picnic in every way.  Friends and family joined members of Westchester Council of the Blind to celebrate being together. We want to thank CUUC for providing the outdoor area.    The pot luck  offered the best  munchies and summer pickings, including fried chicken, a  yummy Italian sub, home-made potato salad and plenty of desserts. Games like Twenty Questions and Name That Tune were enjoyed by all, whether sighted or not.  Click here to View the pictures of our group taking in the great day with guide dogs and guests.

Dining In The Dark fundraiser 2017

Highlights from the Dining In The Dark fundraiser 2017 hosted by the White Plains Lions Club and benefitting the Westchester Council of the Blind.  All proceeds helped support the WCB 50 Plus Technology Grant and the WPLC Charity fund. Guests wore sleep masks to simulate blindness and ate a meal, then reflected upon their experience. A ticket raffle was also a success. The Lions Club was  presented with a proclamation by Senate Minority Leader, Andrea Stewart-cousins, who declared June 10 as the White Plains Lions Dining in the dark Day and congratulated WPLC on their club charter.
