** Buy A Lighted Arm Band and Support Georgia Guide Dog Users

To raise funds, Georgia Guide Dog Users is selling lighted arm bands for $10. These are the same armbands that were sold by Guide Dog Users of Florida in 2010.

These versatile arm bands are made of weather- and shock-resistant materials and are 10-15 inches in length. The adjustable elastic band is black, with the portion over the light made of reflective yellow material. The three-position switch is for a flashing or solid red light that is visible for up to one mile in no- or low-light situations. A Velcro flap covers the unit with the switch and battery housing. The replaceable battery, which is included, lasts for 200 hours.

These arm bands are ideal for blind and visually impaired pedestrians, and for friends and family who walk, run, bike, or are out doing anything at night. You and they will be safer by being more visible to drivers, and you can help GGDU at the same time.

To order one or more arm bands at $10 each, send a check made out to Georgia Guide Dog Users to Marj Schneider, 212 Oxford Dr., Savannah, GA 31405. Include a note in print or braille with the address where the order should be sent. For further questions, contact Marj at
