Peninsula White Cane Club folds

A service club in Sidney will dissolve this month.

The executive reluctantly made the decision to end the Sidney and District White Cane club after seeking out new executive and membership over the past few months.

“We have taken this decision as a result of being unsuccessful at finding volunteers to run the club beyond the end of April,” said president Karren Crowley.

 

The Sidney and District White Cane club cease in May after 20 years of services to areia visually impaired residents. The club will still participate in an outing with the CNIB and Victoria White Cane Club to Butchart Gardens in early May.
