A Day at the Park was held Saturday,
focusing on themes of child abuse prevention and foster family recruitment.
The free event at Green Brook Park went
until noon with several enjoying the comfortable spring morning.
“We do this in observance of child abuse
prevention,” said Lisa Cripps of the DeKalb Prevention Coalition which put on
the event along with the Community Advisory Board. There were informational
booths, games as well as hot dogs, drinks and popcorn for those in attendance.
The event encouraged everyone to help in
making DeKalb County a better place for children and families by making sure
parents have the knowledge and resources to better care for their children.
With that information and help, child abuse and neglect can be averted, making
for better lives for all DeKalb County residents, young and old.
The DeKalb Prevention Coalition and DeKalb
Community Advisory Board meet together the last Tuesday of each month. For
