Cullman, Alabama – A candlelight vigil to remember children who have died from abuse and neglect as well of survivors of abuse will be held Thursday evening at Depot Park in Cullman.
The annual event was to be held last week but was postponed due to thunderstorms. Cullman Caring for Kids and Cullman County Department of Human Resources (DHR) is hosting the ceremony at 6:30 p.m. at the park fountain. If there’s rain, the event will be held under the nearby Festhalle Pavilion.
April is Child Abuse Awareness Month, and several events are planned, including the Safe Kids Expo 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 25 at Sportsman Lake Park and a free child identification program from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 29 and 30 at Cullman Caring for Kids’ office.
