HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - A small group from the Hasbrouck Heights Contemporary Club planted pinwheels Saturday morning as part of the annual child abuse awareness campaign.
The group of four planted a pinwheel garden at Fireman's Memorial Park on the circle at part of National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The women planted the blue and yellow 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 tenth 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®.
