The Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut invites all to attend an Open House and Ribbon Cutting at the new  South East CT Community Center of the Blind, 75R Granite Street in New London, from 4 to 6 PM on Wednesday, June 1. Local dignitaries will be on hand and light refreshments will be available, so come and discover how the Center of the Blind is building a better future for those with vision impairment.  On street parking is recommended.  Disabled parking is located off Channing Street.

“Our new facility will allow us to do even more to help the sight impaired lead independent and productive lives as we continue to erase some of the stigmatisms associated with blindness”, said Scott Skinner, the Center’s President. Skinner says the Center of the Blind provides advocacy and referral services, runs an array of regular social and educational events, and assists those with vision loss to receive training in the personal and professional skills that will empower them for success.
