Rhode Island White Cane Day 2022

Under sunny and warm skies, many people came out for Rhode Island’s 2022 White Cane Day event on Saturday, October 15, at the Garden City Center in Cranston. Attendees received a free t-shirt, snacks, chocolate-covered white cane pretzels, and information from almost a dozen local agencies. A balloon artist and a face painter brought a lot of family-friendly fun to the event.

Speakers at the event included emcee Chris Bove, Rhode Island House Speaker Joseph Sherkachi, State Representative Julie Casimiro, State House page Ryan Lukowicz, local storyteller Mark Binder, and featured speaker Jay Blake from Follow A Dream.
