CAMERON—The Milam County and District Attorney’s Office will sponsor its annual “Tree of Angels” ceremony at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12, at the Milam County Museum.
Carole Sparks, Victims Services coordinator for the prosecutor’s office said the ceremony “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,” she said.
Members of the armed services will also be remembered and honored during the ceremony.
“All military families are invited to attend and place an angel on the tree, in honor of or in remembrance of their military loved one,” Sparks said.

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