White Canes Connect, Episode 2

Episode 2 of White Canes Connect is the first of two episodes about National Convention. We take a trip down memory lane with Connie Schue of the Erie chapter and Jim Antonacci of the Keystone Chapter. Connie and Jim each have 30 years of consecutive convention tales they share (well, not all 30) along with their thoughts on today’s virtual convention experience. Hear how even after attending so many conventions over the years, Connie and Jim say each one has been special and memorable.
