On Friday, April 12, Chester County Mayor Barry Hutcherson joined the Chester County Carl Perkins Center and others in the community to read a proclamation for April being Child Abuse Prevention Month. The blue ribbons on the fence in front of the Chester County Courthouse are on display to spread awareness for Child Abuse Prevention Month. An excerpt of the proclamation reads: “Whereas, child abuse is a serious and growing problem affecting more than 3.2 million of our nation’s children annually; and whereas this societal malignancy called child abuse respects no racial, religious, class or geographical boundaries, and in fact, has been declared a national emergency; and Whereas the Exchange Club-Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse, through its support of parent aide programs, parenting classes, educational programs, therapy programs and community service activities, is making significant progress in stopping this crime against families and children.” Pictured left to right is Carl Perkins Center intern Amanda Williamson, April Collins, Carl Perkins Center therapist Candice Chambers, Chester County Mayor Barry Hutcherson, Brittany Lewis, Emmalynn VanDyke and Chester County Property Assessor Beverly Morton.
