C.A.S.A.  (Court Appointed Child Advocates) will hold a candlelight vigil on April 25, at 7:15 p.m., to raise awareness about child abuse and neglect.  There will be a local choir singing and the Boy Scouts of America will be there.  C.A.S.A. will read the Proclamation for Child Abuse Awareness which was passed in Commissioners Court. There will be a lantern release of 171 lanterns to represent the 171 cases of child abuse across the state of Texas, seven of which were from right here in the communities we serve.  If you would like your child to be a part of this dramatic and remarkable evening, you can contact Nikki Jones, Executive Director for C.A.S.A. at 886-CASA.  Your child could honor and represent one of these 171 children from Orange County. One hundred seventy one is the number of children C.A.S.A. needs to release a lantern into the sky.
