Waynesboro now has a visible reminder for residents to keep an eye out for child abuse.

On Friday afternoon, a pinwheel garden was created on Main Street near Constitution Park.

The pinwheel is the national symbol of child abuse prevention.

The garden also has blue ribbons, which are worn throughout the month as another reminder.

The Waynesboro Woman's Club was excited to see how popular this event was.

"We had about 75 people, it was great," says Elizabeth Smith, from the Waynesboro Woman's Club. "The mayor was here, Mayor Frank Lucente came, and we presented him with a pinwheel, and the blue ribbon that we have. He took them all back for the city council chairs to have."

The garden will be up through the rest of April.
