Flag Raising Ceremony

  • Date Posted: Sep 29, 2022

This morning, RRH, Kern Country Department of Human Services, local representatives, and members of the community gathered in solidarity and support to raise awareness of Child Abuse Prevention. Our special Flag Raising Ceremony, coinciding with National Child Abuse Prevention Month, served as an act of remembrance for the young lives that have been tragically lost throughout our county, as a result of child abuse.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank all who made this event possible, including:

Guest speakers included Mayor Peggy Breeden, Dena Murphy, Director Kern County Department of Human Services, Tera Moorehead, RRH Community Outreach Director, and Reverend Kris Madsen.

Performance of "Amazing Grace" by Alesha Givens (unmute volume to hear the performance) and the raising of the flag by the Sidewinder Squadron.

If you suspect abuse or neglect please call the Child Abuse Hotline:

(661) 631-6011 (Countywide) | (760) 375-6049 (Ridgecrest) - Report 24 hours per day, 7 days per week | For all emergencies call 911.

We all play a role in preventing child abuse.
