HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - Members of the Hasbrouck Heights Contemporary Club planted pinwheels as part of the group's annual child abuse awareness campaign.
The group planted a pinwheel garden at Fireman's Memorial Park on the circle at part of National Child Abuse Prevention Month. They planted the red, while, and blue pinwheels along the walkway and in the flower boxes of the gazebo, along with signs about the campaign. The sign reads in part "These pinwheels present our commitment to Great Childhoods - happy and safe - for all children in our community."
This is the 11th year that the Club has planted a pinwheel garden to shed light on the issue.
National Child Abuse Prevention Month was first observed in 1983 by proclamation by President Ronald Reagan. In 2008, Prevent Child Abuse America introduced the pinwheel as the new national symbol for child abuse prevention through Pinwheels for Prevention®.
