In recognition of Prevent Child Abuse Awareness Month, the Adams County advocacy group SAFE (Supporting All Families Everyday) has created a pinwheel garden on the south side of the courthouse lawn.
The blue pinwheels, which will be displayed today through Friday, are "like a promise to children to keep them safe," said SAFE spokeswoman Cindy Thieme.
Thieme also stated that SAFE is focused on keeping children safe and happy, and is hoping to provide resources to assist parents and caregivers, including parenting support groups, skills classes, mentoring, and more.
The county commissioners on Monday approved use of the courthouse lawn for the three days.
SAFE meets the second Tuesday of each month at the Decatur Public Library, from 6-8 p.m.
