CITY OF MIDLOTHIAN EVENTS - WEEK OF DECEMBER 5th
Tree of Angels
To be held on Tuesday, December 6th at 7 p.m., the Tree of Angels Dedication Ceremony provides a place for families and friends to grieve the loss of a loved one due to a violent crime or sudden death. It also provides an opportunity for victims of violent crime to heal. Organized by the Midlothian Police Department, the event will be held at the Shepherd's House Church, 3221 Mockingbird Lane, Midlothian, and is open to anyone in Ellis County. Participants are invited to bring an “Angel Ornament” to place on the special tree in honor of their loved one. A reception and refreshments will follow the dedication ceremony at the church. It is asked that those planning to attend, let Chaplain Larry Atchley know by November 29th so arrangements can be made for the correct number of guests.
