Symbols of Solidarity & Hope Seen Around the Village

Clusters of colorful pinwheels and signs have sprung up in numerous locations throughout Rosemont in support of the efforts of an area organization to combat child abuse.

Placement of 10 pinwheels at each location began last Friday. They will remain in place during April which is Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Called “pinwheel gardens”, the displays appear near the front doors of village hall, at Rosemont police station’s lobby entrance doors, at Station 1 firehouse, at the entrance doors of the Public Works facility, in Lange and Dunne parks, and the Barry Recreation Center.

At least two pinwheel gardens will appear near the Rosemont fashion outlet mall.

“The Children’s Advocacy Center of North & Northwest Cook County provides free healing services to children who have experienced abuse, allowing them to process trauma and reclaim their childhoods,” according to the center’s website.

According to Joe Balogh of the Rosemont Public Safety Department, the village works with the center when it has cases involving children.

Taylor Kanara, director of development at the advocacy center in Hoffman Estates said, “These gardens serve as symbols of solidarity and hope.”
