Tree of Angels ceremony to honor crime victims, family

The Milam County and District Attorney’s Office will sponsor the Tree of Angels ceremony Monday, Dec. 11, at 6 p.m., at the Milam County Museum located at 112 West First Street in downtown Cameron.  

The Tree of Angels program is celebrated each year across Texas and enables survivors of violent crime and victims’ families to place an angel ornament on a special Christmas tree in support of or in memory of their loved one.  This tradition was started in 1991 in hopes that the blessings of the holiday season would comfort the victims and their families during this difficult time.

Members of the armed services and law enforcement will also be remembered and honored. All military and law enforcement families are invited to attend and place an angel on the tree in honor of or in remembrance of their loved one.

The public is invited to attend the ceremony to show their support.  

Participants are asked to bring an angel ornament tagged with the first and last name of the person to be remembered or honored.  

If you are not able to attend and would like an angel placed on the Tree of Angels in honor or in memory of your loved one, contact Trish Vargas at (254) 697-7013 or send an email to for more information.

Refreshments will be served at the conclusion the program.  

Donations can be made to the Tree of Angels Account at Buckholts State Bank in Cameron, Buckholts or Rogers to assist with program expenses.
