April is Child Abuse Awareness Month and the Jack County Welfare Board is selling blue pinwheels for $10 in memory or in honor of a child. They will be displayed at the front of Perrin ISD on April 28 to promote awareness and support for victims of child abuse and neglect.
The pinwheels are a visual reminder about child abuse prevention and symbolize the importance of everyone working together to protect our children. For more information, contact Debra Tillery at (940) 507-1471 or Jo Brumfield at (940) 859-6040.
You may purchase the pinwheels at any of the Perrin churches or at the school.

The Pirate baseball team’s last scheduled game of the season is Friday at Bryson, with the game beginning at 5 pm.
