CASA of the Heartland's annual Community Pinwheel Event took place on Friday, April 15, from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
CASA placed 591 pinwheels in the front lawn of their office, located at 580 Westport Road in Elizabethtown, in honor of the 591 children that they have served in the Hardin County / Fort Knox area. Community members were invited to attend throughout the day as their schedules allowed.
“This event is a strong representation of our commitment to serving the children in our community who are, unfortunately, navigating the family court system,” said Norma Hatfield, CASA of the Heartland Executive Director. “April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month and the pinwheel is its representation of a child’s innocence. Our goal is to provide a visual representation of how many children whose innocence has been impacted by abuse and neglect.”
