National Day of Remembrance planned

Posted:

Local child advocacy groups are hoping you'll take part in the Children's Memorial Flag Day ceremony this Friday.  Three million children report child abuse and neglect each year in America of which thousands die.  The National Day of Remembrance is set aside to take a moment to reflect on the tragedies of the past year.  April is also Child Abuse Prevention month.

The Children's Memorial Flag Day ceremony begins at noon, Friday April 26th, at the Mercer County Courthouse.  The keynote address will be delivered by Senator Bill Cole.
There will also be a time for recognition of special advocates for children, announcement of the winners of the coloring contest associated with Children's Memorial Flag Day and special music.
It will conclude with the 7th Annual Remembrance Walk around the courthouse.
