Independent Editor,

This past April, we challenged our community in helping us Paint Our Town Blue. The response and support we received from businesses, schools, agencies and individuals was incredible! Our goal was to flood the community with blue pinwheels, and we were able to do just that. Our mission is to provide hope and healing for children and families who have been victims of sexual abuse and/or extreme physical abuse. With the support of our community, we are able to continue providing these vital services. So thank you, to everyone who sponsored, planted, and was a part of creating a movement and awareness of child abuse and neglect. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Thank you to: Shiawassee Prevention Network; First Congregational Church & Congregational Child Development Center; Central  School PTO; Mid-Michigan Dental Center, PC; Allstar Towing & Repair; Shiawassee Regional Education Service District (SRESD); American Legion Post 57; Dr. Jeffrey Golombisky, DDS; Owosso Ministerial Association; Evergreen Kennels; Shiawassee County DHHS; and Emerson School PTO.
