Commissioners sign National Child Abuse Prevention Month proclamation


Alamosa County Commissioner Helen Sigmond, Department of Human Services Director Catherine Salazar, County Commissioner Michael Yohn and County Commissioner Darius Allen pose with a signed proclamation declaring April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month at Wednesday's meeting.

On Saturday DHS is partnering with the City of Alamosa, the Children's Advocacy Center of the San Luis Valley and Tu Casa to hold a children's carnival at the Alamosa Recreation Center from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

"I want to commend the staff for all of their hard work," Sigmond said. "I know how hard this job and it's good that they can have a fun event that people can enjoy."
