Wednesday was "Wear Blue Day", to raise awareness during Child Abuse Prevention Month.

This was intended to be a day of urging people wear blue, but a civic-minded neighbor of ours wasn't willing to settle for that.

Doc Stumbo, Public Relations Manager for Graham Auto Mall in Mansfield, hastily put together a rally involving employees of the car dealership and Richland County Children Services.

Children Services Director Patty Harrelson says this was a great gesture in the on-going effort to keep children safe. 

April 10th being "Wear Blue Day" dates back to the eightteen-sixties with the creation of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, which led to the creation of the New York Society to Prevent Cruelty to Children, with both groups using the color to raise awareness.
