Placeholder Image
A party to raise awareness about child abuse tested a policy change by McMinnville officials that requires two weeks notice on all measures under consideration before the Board of Mayor and Aldermen. Children’s Advocacy Center director Martha Pierce and Families in Crisis director Kristy Stubblefield came before the board asking for free use of McMinnville Civic Center on April 20 to offer a children’s festival during Child Abuse Awareness Month.The two organizations, as well as Kids of the Community and Hamilton Street Activity Center, will be organizing the event to raise awareness about child abuse. Pierce says the event will be free of charge, so no money will be made to pay for the rental.“This is not a fundraiser,” Pierce said.
