GALVESTON, TX -- The Galveston County Criminal District Attorney’s Office cordially invites you to join them for the 19h Annual Tree of Angels Ceremony on December 5, 2017, at 6:30 p.m., at the Galveston County Criminal Justice Center, 600 59th Street, Galveston, Texas.

 

The upcoming holidays are a difficult time for victims and their families, as well as a time of reflection.  Many people look for a meaningful way to memorialize and honor loved ones who have been lost to violent crime.  The Tree of Angels ceremony provides that opportunity.

 

The ceremony is a reverent forum where friends, family and community members may join together to remember, honor, and support crime victims and their families, this ceremony celebrates the lives of the victims, and gives surviving family members a way to keep their memory alive. At the same time, it serves as an opportunity for the Galveston County Criminal District Attorney’s Office to reaffirm it’s commitment to seeing that justice is served for both the victims and their families. Personalized Angel ornaments will adorn two dedicated trees in recognition of those lost loved ones.  Community members can honor a loved one lost to violent crime by placing an ornament on the trees. 

 

Please mark your calendar for this very special event.  If you would like to be a part of this event or for additional information, please contact DeeDee Anderson, Chief of the Galveston County District Attorney Victim / Witness Division, at (409) 770-5124.
