The Commissioners Court of Milam County declares Dec. 10 as Tree of Angels day.

The Tree of Angels invites families, and families who lost loved ones to violent crimes, to bring an angel ornament to place on a special tree. The tradition has been adopted throughout Texas as a means to offer support to those traumatized by violent crimes.

In a proclamation letter, The Commissioners Court of Milam County wrote a statement:

"As a country, our continuing goal is to ensure swift and effective justice to bring healing to victims and their loved ones, we encourage all of Milam County to join in recognizing crime victims, their families those who work to prevent crimes.”
