A Pinwheel Garden planting is happening at Taylorsville City Hall on April 1st to promote April as Child Abuse Prevention Month. Renee Sorensen from the Taylorsville Exchange Club has been organizing this annual event since 2012, and joined Midday to talk about how people can get involved.
Community members of all ages will plant over 500 blue pinwheels in the lawn outside at Taylorsville City Hall. The blue pinwheel, representing innocence is a national symbol for child abuse prevention. Pinwheels reflect the bright future all children deserve. The pinwheel is a positive emblem of the effect we can have when we work together to prevent child abuse.
Renee says sometimes we need to be reminded about the world around us, and the pinwheel display gives a good opportunity for parents to talk to their children about this world and how to protect themselves. The pinwheel can start the parent/child dialog and conversation and/or open the door to find assistance in becoming better parents.
