It’s more difficult for some Grimes County homes to get into the spirit of the season, because they’ve fallen victim to violent crime. That’s what the annual Tree of Angels program is all about, paying tribute to all who have been horribly wronged.
And now there are two trees in the county, Crime Victims Coordinator Brenda William’s tells Navasota News, due to the unfortunate increase in the number of victims.
Williams says anyone who’s been touched by crime is invited to place an angel on either the tree at the Grimes County Sheriff’s station or Navasota City Hall, where it will join all the others placed there since the tradition began 10 years ago.
Navasota Mayor Bert Miller will officially proclaim the month of December “Tree of Angels Month,” during Dec 8th’s city council session.
And Williams adds she wants to thank everyone in the county who’ve tirelessly labored to help local victims, adding that if you’d like to help or to place an angel yourself, call her at 936-870-5079.
