FORT BEND COUNTY TEXAS – Citizens of Fort Bend will soon notice a sea of white stakes with blue ribbons in the northeast lawn of the old courthouse, located on Highway 90 in Richmond. Each of the 1,350 ribbons represents a child served by Child Advocates of Fort Bend last year. April is Child Abuse Awareness month and each stake will provide a visual reminder for all parents and community members that the well being of our children is the responsibility of our community as a whole.
On April 2, 2012, the Exchange Club of Fort Bend, Exchange Club of Rosenberg, and the Lone Star Exchange Club of Richmond along with the District Attorney, the County Judge’s office, and other elected officials from Richmond and Rosenberg will be present to officially proclaim April as Child Abuse Awareness Month. A brief dedication ceremony will begin at 5:15 p.m. and the National Exchange Club will be distributing “tip sheets” for parents. The greater community and all county employees are invited to attend.
