Mayor Morse to Host Children’s Memorial Day

Mayor Alex B. Morse invites the public to join him, in conjunction with the Child Welfare League of America, in a ceremony that will memorialize children, advocate ending violence and declare April as “Child Abuse Prevention Month”. On Thursday, April 23 at 10:00 A.M. the Mayor will be joined in front of City Hall by representatives from dozens of social agencies, as well as state, local officials and children in recognition of Children’s Memorial Day.

Our community will be joining with countless others across the country to remember the thousands of children lost in the last year to violence. The symbol of this observance will be the presentation and display of the Children’s Memorial Flag. The flag is a simple, moving image—a red field depicting blue, paper-doll-like figures of children holding hands. In the center, the white chalk outline of a missing child symbolizes the children lost to violence.

We hope to see you at the Children’s Memorial Flag Day. Please show the children in your life that they are special and have the right to be safe.
