The third annual "In Sight Full Day" is planned for Saturday, October 10th in Chico. It's a resource day for the blind and visually impaired, and will take place at the Enloe conference Center, at 1528 the Esplanade across from Enloe Medical Center.

This event will bring together approximately 20 exhibitors of assistive technology devices, resource agencies and support groups that can help the blind and visually impaired in our area live more productive and independent lives. There will be opportunities for attendees to get hands-on demonstrations of devices such as magnifiers, talking scanners, talking books, telephones for the blind and hearing impaired and much more. There will also be Guide Dog demonstrations, sighted guide training and even a chance to learn from a blind pottery artist, and experience sitting at a pottery wheel and experience how to create pottery bowls without using your sight.

"In Sight Full Day" is Free. It's hosted by Lions Clubs International, District 4-C1. There will be sighted guides available to assist if needed.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more in formation contact Larry Marcum at 530-345-5399. To learn more about Lions Clubs International, visit
