CHURCHILL - Pinwheels for Prevention Walk
Friday, April 19th: FRIENDS Family Resource Center partnered with Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe to bring child abuse awareness to Churchill County. The city fountain was dyed blue to kick off our campaign. We invited local officials such as Mayor Ken Tedford, Sheriff Ben Trotter, Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribal Police and people from our community for a picture op. We placed pinwheels throughout Churchill County including City Hall and Millennium Park. Saturday was our main event; the community met at Millennium Park for the child abuse awareness walk. Participants received a free Pinwheels for Prevention T-shirt and a pinwheel to plant at the end of the walk. Miss Indian Nations, Shannon Hooper, welcomed the community and spoke about child abuse awareness. After the walk, we gathered at Oats Park for the Earth Day family event where we had educational booths, free crafts, and live entertainment.
