Prevent Child Abuse pinwheel event Tuesday

by Bradley Hartsell

On Tuesday, Prevent Child Abuse Coweta will host its annual pinwheel event in front of the Wadsworth Auditorium for national child abuse awareness month.

The pinwheels, a nationally recognized symbol of all Prevent Child Abuse chapters, will be planted on the lawn at 10 a.m. in front of the auditorium on Jefferson Street in downtown Newnan, according to PCA Coweta’s Susan Ebersbach.

“These pinwheels are a lovely and colorful way to bring awareness of a grave problem in our community and every community,” said Ebersbach. “Each pinwheel serves as a reminder of a child who has been a victim of child abuse in Coweta County during 2013.”

Newnan Mayor Keith Brady will officially establish April as an opportunity to raise awareness in the community and share ideas for prevention.

In conjunction with the pinwheel event, on April 24, a candlelight vigil will be held at Greenville Street Park south of the Newnan business district at 7 p.m.

“This ceremony brings our awareness month to a close by not only remembering the smallest victims in our community, but also by celebrating our unified promise to make Coweta County a safer place to be a child,” said Ebersbach. “We have some inspiring speakers and beautiful music and singing planned for this brief program that I'm sure all will enjoy.”
