On­tario Chil­dren’s Aid agen­cies are ask­ing pro­vin­cial mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties to de­clare the month of Oc­to­ber Child Abuse Pre­ven­tion Month.

Duane Durham and Sarah Coyle of High­land Shores Chil­dren’s Aid, which serves Northum­ber­land County, ap­peared as a del­e­ga­tion at Cramahe Twp. coun­cil Sept. 5 to so­licit sup­port for a num­ber of dec­la­ra­tions — and re­ceived it.

For Oc­to­ber, po­lice and fire de­part­ments are asked to dis­play pur­ple rib­bons on ve­hi­cles. Cramahe was also asked to have pur­ple rib­bons tied around street­lights in down­town Col­borne for Oc­to­ber and that cit­i­zens mark Tues­day, Oct. 24 as Dress Pur­ple Day by wear­ing pur­ple cloth­ing to show sup­port.

Cramahe also agreed to pro­claim the week of Oct. 15-21 as Foster Fam­ily Week and Novem­ber as Adop­tion Aware­ness Month.
