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.

The Texas Municipal Police Association has teamed up with the Texas Department of Transportation to present a free, two-hour Distracted Driving course to Texas drivers. Please join us and thousands of other Texas drivers who have already taken the course as we make an effort to save lives. In order to truly combat the problem, we must change attitudes!
