137 ribbons; 137 victims of child abuse
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
In 2015 there were 137 alleged victims of child abuse in Brown County. 137 blue ribbons have been hung on a tree on the corner of Garden Street and Center Street to elevate awareness of child abuse and the prevention of abuse and neglect.
The blue ribbon is the international sign for child abuse prevention and serves as a reminder that everyone has a responsibility to help keep children safe.
