Go Blue Day this Friday
The Bowie County Child Welfare Board will host its annual event to bring awareness to child abuse and prevention, this Friday at noon at the Bowie County Courthouse.
Local dignitaries, including Judge Jeff Addison and Judge Craig Henry, will speak at the event and their will be special music by Allie Graves. Local Boy Scouts will also conduct a flag ceremony.
The event will have a new twist this year, as bubbles will replace the blue balloons to represent those kids in Bowie County currently in care by the Board, and a lone white balloon will be released in remembrance of the one child who died as a result of abuse in Bowie County in the last year.
Everyone is urged to wear blue to show your support and come to the courthouse this Friday at noon as we come together as a community to bring awareness to the terrible problem of child abuse.
