Drivers passing through downtown Dawsonville will see the lawn of Grace Presbyterian Church filled with 300 shiny pinwheels spinning in the light spring breeze. Every April for the past eight years, a pinwheel garden has been planted in the city by the Dawson County Woman’s Club and the Dawson County High School Juniorettes in honor of Pinwheels for Prevention, an initiative of Prevent Child Abuse USA. This year the pinwheels are placed at the intersection of Hwy. 53 and Hwy. 9.
