Church bells ring for FAS
The Knightstown Women’s Christian Temperance Union remind us that each year on Sept. 9 at 9:09 a.m., bells ring to sound the alarm about Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), the leading birth defect in the U.S. Bells will ring in Rushville.
FAS is the leading known cause of preventable mental retardation. The effects of FAS last a lifetime. Primary disabilities include lower IQ, impaired ability in reading and arithmetic and a lower level of adoptive functioning. FAS is entirely preventable when pregnant women abstain from drinking alcohol throughout their entire pregnancy.
The following churches will be ringing their bells: Center Christian Church, Main Street Christian Church, St. Paul’s United Methodist, First Presbyterian and St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Thanks to those who faithfully ring their bells on Sept. 9 each year.
