Pinwheel planting at Family Court symbolizes hope for kids — PHOTOS

Hundreds of pinwheels were planted Friday outside the Eighth Judicial District Family Court to symbolize hope for more than 3,200 children in the community who face abuse and neglect and who receive services under the court’s supervision.
