April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, and all month long the Seminole County Family Connection Collaborative’s Pinwheels for Prevention display hopes to increase awareness in the community of child abuse prevention. The colorful display is located on the corner of Highway 84 and Tennille Avenue in Donalsonville
On Tuesday, March 30th Seminole County 4-H members partnered with Seminole County Family Connection to “plant” the collaborative’s annual pinwheel garden. Members who helped with the planting presentation included Hannah Snider, Jolie Grand, Celia Weir, Cindy Meadows, Kynia Blake, and Ty Weir. During the month long awareness campaign Seminole County Family Connection coordinator, Billie McLendon is offering free “Darkness to Light” training.
