posted Mar 28, 2012, 8:25 AM by Crissy Nolen

Child Abuse Prevention "Awareness Field"  - (a joint project of Fort Bend, Richmond and Rosenberg Exchange Clubs!)

Schedule of Activities

March 28, 29 ,30 Wednesday, Thursday, Friday from  4:00pm until - dark

The plan is to meet at the Texana Learning Center (directions below) and prepare stakes for display. 

This activity will entail painting the 1350 stakes and then tying blue ribbons on them.

What to bring (if you have it):  

work gloves (the stakes are made of wood and splinters are possible);

Painting equipment:  Rollers, roller covers, paint pans for the rollers.  The paint is exterior latex so clean up with water will be the rule!

March 31 Saturday 10:am - until completed.

This is a fall back plan to complete anything that remains to finish and hopefully is not necessary at all!

April 1 Sunday 3:00 pm

The plan will be to meet on the Northeast lawn of the old county courthouse to actually place the painted stakes in an array that will be the "Awareness Field".  What to bring:  Work gloves as above, Rubber Mallets would be ideal, hammers as an alternative.  If you have extras, bring them as some may not have any.  Anyone with a 50'+ tape measure, please bring it.  The basic display of the stakes will take a 37' x 37' space with stakes placed at one foot intervals.


April 2 Monday 5:15 pm - 5:30 pm

An actual dedication / presentation ceremony will take place.  Proclamations are planned from the County Judge and Mayors of Richmond and Rosenberg. 

Please wear BLUE if at all possible.


Don't forget, we are in Unity for Service and this will be another oppportunity to serve!   The more "Hands on Decks" the faster this will go.

Finally, it is unfortunate but somehow  I have managed to hurt my back and will be of limited physical ability but I will do all that I can but desperately need your help!  I know I can count on you!
