April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. A calendar of all activities for the month will soon be published. For now, please mark your calendar and plan to join us on April 2nd at 11 AM at Floyd County DFCS (450 Riverside Parkway) for our annual placement of the pinwheels. (Note: This is a different location than usual). This year, we will place 127 pinwheels to represent the 127 families in which abuse and neglect was confirmed in 2017. After the pinwheels are in place, we’ll have a brief program and take a group picture to symbolize our commitment to keeping children in Rome/Floyd County safer in 2018. Wear blue in honor of the month and dress comfortably.
