A reception will be held in Garden City on Monday in honor and remembrance of crime victims who lost their lives.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt made the announcement in cooperation with the Kansas Organization for Victim Assistance.

“The holiday season can be a difficult time for the families of crime victims,” he said. “These receptions provide families an opportunity to come together and honor their memories and share support and encouragement.”

The reception will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. at St. Catherine Hospital, 401 E. Spruce St., in Classroom B.

Friends and family members of crime victims are invited to attend and bring an ornament for an “Angel Tree” in honor of their loved ones. The public is also invited to attend.
