Denton – CASA of Caroline recognized April’s Child Abuse Prevention Month with activities to get the entire community involved. The month kicked-off with a Pinwheel Planting Ceremony in the Denton Community Garden on Saturday, April 3. Elected officials, members of the community, and CASA volunteers, board members and staff “planted” pinwheels to raise awareness. Throughout the month, students from CCPS colored 261 pinwheels to fill the CASA of Caroline windows. Pinwheel displays were created around the county by groups including Community Club of Preston, Preston Historical Society, Caroline County Sheriff’s Department, Federalsburg and Denton Police Departments, Choptank Transport, and others who wanted to show their support for the happy, healthy childhoods all kids deserve!
Pinwheels were available for folks to create their own displays thanks to our sponsors: Denton Rotary, Purple Peake CBD, and Caroline County State’s Attorney Joe Riley. Special thanks to Greensboro Pharmacy, Ridgely Pharmacy, Patti’s Petals, The Foundry, Purple Peake, Joviality, Shore United Denton Branch, Federalsburg Family Restaurant and Katie Mae’s in Preston for making the pinwheels available for the public. We were truly awed by the outpouring of support from the Caroline County community and thank everyone for their involvement and helping us create awareness of this very important issue!
