April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

Henry County Child Advocacy met with the Henry County Supervisors on Thursday morning. Here, they made a proclamation recognizing April as Child Abuse Prevention Month. Erin Jones, with Henry County Extension and Outreach, spoke about the importance of bringing awareness to the issue. If you see blue pinwheels on the courthouse lawn in April, it is because pinwheels symbolize a carefree childhood, which every child should have. April 5th is national wear blue day, where people are encouraged to wear their favorite blue in honor of their commitment to preventing child abuse.
