Annual Low Vision Resource Fair – April 13, 2018

The West Hawaii Chapter of the National Federation of the Blind hosted a Low Vision Fair at Hale Halawai in Kona on April 13, 2018.

The meeting was well attended by those with low vision or blindness.  Many in the community were interested in gathering information for their friends, family or those they cared for.  The social area was always full of attendees exchanging ideas and information or just talking story.    Nineteen agencies, organizations and vendors attended the fair with information and products.  West Hawaii Community Health performed diabetes screenings.  The fair was such a success that we are already planning for one next year!
