The Erath County victim services staff will host its annual Tree of Angels ceremony at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 2, at the Donald R. Jones Justice Center. The ceremony is a time for victims and the families and friends of victims to come together and remember those who have been victimized or lost due to violent crime.

This year's guest speaker will be Jodee Lucero, director of Cross Timbers Family Services.
