Join preschoolers to commemorate child abuse prevention month

On Friday, Preschoolers from Plaza de Niños will lead Metropolitan Community College-Penn Valley, the Francis Institute for Child & Youth Development and Guadalupe Centers, Inc. to plant pinwheels in commemoration of Child Abuse Prevention Month.

The children will plant pinwheels outside the Francis Institute as a reminder of the simplicity and innocence of childhood.

 The ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. and be held at the Francis Institute at MCC-Penn Valley, 3201 Southwest Trafficway.

 The occasion is also a day Kansas Citians and local organizations are asked to wear blue as a visible commitment to support the month.
