April  is Child Abuse Prevention Month and Seminole County Family Connection has teamed up with Seminole County 4-H members to plant a pinwheel garden as a reminder to the community to do their part in the prevention of child abuse.  The pinwheel garden is located at the corner of Highway 84 and Tennille Avenue in downtown Donalsonville.

“A very special thank you to Seminole 4-H members for helping assemble the garden,” commented Billie McLendon, Seminole County Family Connection Coordinator. 

Seminole County Family Connection is offering an opportunity to help educate community members on ways to prevent and recognize child abuse. Its Darkness to Light program is dedicated to helping bring awareness to communities about the subject of child abuse prevention. The program provides information to empower adults to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse through awareness, education, and stigma reduction.

Through the month of April, Family Connection is offering agencies and individuals free of charge training in the Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children program free of charge.  

If you are interested in this free training, contact McLendon at 229-309-0531 or
