Give Me Liberty

"Just a quick note regarding the Give Me Liberty winners from Snow Canyon Elementary. I cannot tell you how impressed I was with these twelve fifth-graders! I would challenge almost anyone in the club to name every state and its capitol city or the continents and oceans, or repeat the preamble to the Constitution or to sign the Pledge of Allegiance! It was truly inspiring! And, they were also just ding-dang cute!!" - Trish

Child Abuse Prevention and the Children's Justice Center

A display representing victims of child abuse in Washington County will be unveiled on Thursday, April 1st at 463 East 500 South. Early that morning, members of the St. George Exchange Club will erect the display and a banner of explanation will be hung by volunteer Al Ayling.

275 silhouettes of children, painted blue and purple, represent the number of children interviewed through the WCCJC in 2009.

These silhouettes will become an annual visual demonstration to the community of the need for child abuse prevention. It is hoped that this display will serve as a reminder that the children of Washington County need the support and protection of all adults.

Following creation by local artist and Friend’s Board member Smilla Miller, the silhouettes were brought to life and edges smoothed by volunteers Doyle Ohlwiler, Doug Shaerrer and Kathy Howard under the direction of volunteer and “master craftsman” Al Ayling. Painting was then completed by Dixie College 1st Stake Service Council members headed up by Benjamin Moss along with Craig Broadhead and Bruce Bailey.

The Washington County Children’s Justice Center was established in 1997 to provide a safe, neutral, child-friendly environment where professionals from law enforcement and child protective services can interview children between the ages of 2 and 18 when allegations of sexual abuse, physical abuse or other crimes against children are made. Since opening in February, 1997, over 3,000 children have been interviewed at the Center and their family members and guardians have received services.

To help raise awareness of Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Washington County Children’s Justice Center invites all community members to drive by this powerful new display at 463 East 500 South beginning April 1st and continuing through April 30.
