Pinwheel Garden Planting

Monday, March 27, 2017

Join members of the community for this National Child Abuse Prevention Month event.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month and the City of Falls Church is working to raise awareness about the safety and well-being of children. A pinwheel garden will be planted at the entrance of Cherry Hill Park (312 Park Ave.) on Monday, March 27, 2016 at 7:00 p.m., followed by a proclamation at the City Council meeting at 7:30 p.m. in Council Chambers in City Hall (300 Park Ave.).

Members of the community are invited to both events and encouraged to wear blue, the official color of child abuse and neglect prevention.

The pinwheel is the symbol of child abuse prevention and reflects childhood hope, health and happiness. Pinwheel gardens are planted by organizations, schools, and businesses in communities throughout the nation during National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Parents can find more ways to build community and hope during National Child Abuse Prevention month with this activity calendar developed by the Child Welfare Information Gateway, a program of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
