Harrison County Prevent Child Abuse Community Awareness Event

Neither wind nor rain… On a breezy Tuesday morning ahead of stormy weather in Harrison County, Lacey Mitchell, left, and Stephanie Rex, plant pinwheels in support of Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month. After the first federal law to protect children from abuse and neglect was passed in 1974, it wasn’t until 1982 that additional efforts were made to identify and prevent child abuse, and the first National Child Abuse Prevention Month was designated in April. Now, leadership in the Children’s Department at Blue River Services, Inc. help bring awareness to the cause by placing pinwheels along sidewalks in Corydon. The blue pinwheels also represent the innocence of childhood and stand as a reminder of the great childhoods all children deserve. Blue River Services, Inc. leaders will once again participate in the Harrison County Prevent Child Abuse Community Awareness Event. Please join us Tuesday, April 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the YMCA, or call 812-364-1142.
