GFWC Omar Women's Club raises awareness for child abuse


April is Child Abuse Awareness month, and the General Federation Women’s Club of Omar is doing their part.


The club placed pinwheels around their memorial drinking fountain at Chief Logan State Park last week. The pinwheel is an uplifting symbol of childhood used to draw attention and awareness for child abuse and neglect.


The fountain was installed by the Omar Women’s club a decade ago in memory of former GFWC International President, Maxine Scarbro. She was a native West Virginian and a career employee of the Division of Natural Resources.
