Pillager Mayor Sue Van Hal and City Council members has proclaimed April 2015 as Child Abuse Prevention Month.  The proclamation states in part:


            Whereas, all citizens need to be more aware of child abuse and neglect and its prevention within the community, and be involved in supporting parents to raise their children in a safe, nurturing society.


“We believe preventing child abuse and neglect is the responsibility of every community member.  We encourage everyone to find a way to reach out to friends, family, and neighbors to support children and families in our area.” said Myra Horner, Pillager Family Center Home Visitor.


On Tuesday, April 7, 2015, Mayor Van Hal presented the proclamation to Pillager Family Center’s Little Huskies Toddler and Preschool program children and staff who are all holding pinwheels, which reminds us of childlike notions and stands for the chance at the healthy, happy and full lives all children deserve.
