Taylorsville’s Pinwheel Garden promotes Child Abuse Awareness


On Sat., Apr. 7 at 10 a.m., a Pinwheel Garden will be created at Taylorsville City Hall in honor of Child Abuse Prevention month. The Pinwheel Garden, made up of 192 pinwheels, will be on display to the public for the entire month of April. 
A brief ceremony by the Taylorsville Exchange Club and Prevent Child Abuse Utah will be held at 10, and then the public will be invited to participate by placing pinwheels in the triangular garden. 
According to Taylorsville Exchange Club board member, Renee Sorensen, “Pinwheels reflect the bright future all children deserve. The pinwheel is a positive emblem of the positive effect we can have when we work together to prevent child abuse.” 
Taylorsville City will also be flying a Blue Ribbon Flag for the month of April. The flag has the words, “Prevent Child Abuse,” as the blue ribbon has been a symbol of the prevention of child abuse. 
On Mar. 21 the Taylorsville City Council and Mayor passed a resolution proclaiming April as child abuse awareness month. “We are proud of the work that the Taylorsville Exchange Club does every year to bring out awareness,” said Mayor Russ Wall. “Child abuse affects people of all socio-economic levels and we need to watch for signs and look for ways to avoid it.”
This event will take place on the east lawn at Taylorsville City Hall - 2600 W. Taylorsville Blvd (5325 S.).

  1. This is a very good step to promote the fight against child abuse. I hope this would continue even on other places. In our area, family lawyers, Perth social welfare volunteers and some doctors organized a three-day event to help victims of child-abuse and to give them hope that life goes on after what has happened to them and there are more things in life to be happy about.

  2. I support this campaign to. I hope there are more campaigns and activities to promote the awareness of child abuse. As a divorce lawyer in long island, I know that the children are very much affected when their parents get separated. It is important that they are well taken care of after experiencing abuse, trauma and all the dramas.
