This information is from Josephine Mokriski from The Women's Club of Madison:
First Selectman Fillmore McPherson has declared the month of October Domestic Violence Prevention and Awareness Month in the town of Madison.
The Women's Club of Madison has chosen Thursday October 18th as the one day where we can all show our support for this cause by wearing something purple.
The staff at Town Hall will participate as they did last year with our First Selectman Fillmore McPherson leading the way sporting his purple tie and scarf. We are asking all businesses to show their support for our project by either wearing something purple or flying a purple balloon outside their store.
Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention is the signature project of the General Federation of Women's Clubs International and Statewide.
Thank you in advance for supporting the worthy cause.
