Blue Sunday Marks CAPM Finale

24 May 2018

April 2018 was one of our biggest efforts for Child Abuse Prevention Month ever - the number of pinwheel gardens alone outnumbered previous years by a considerable margin. We had particular success this year with participation in Blue Sunday, a nationally recognized day for faith communities to come together in a commitment to end child abuse. Numerous churches in West Lane participated, with one Swisshome pastor devoting the day's sermon to the subject. 

The most stylish Blue Sunday took place in the McKenzie region, however. The appropriately named Blue River branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints showed up for Sunday service in their dapper blue best. Sandra Acevedo, at left in the photo in the dark blue shirt, co-wrote a guest viewpoint on the Roots of Empathy program for the Register-Guard and appeared with Robin Roberts on the front page of the local paper, McKenzie River Reflections, for their CAPM efforts. McKenzie Coordinator Laura Sireci-Roman praises Sandra as "one of our best team members" - and one who spreads the spirit of 90by30 to everyone she knows.
