“Silent Angel” Memorial Will Honor Homicide Victims

The public is invited to attend the Fifteenth Annual Silent Angel Memorial, which will be held on Sunday, November 27, 2016, at the Bay District Volunteer Fire Department, 46900 South Shangri-La Drive in Lexington Park, MD, 20653. The program will begin at 6:00 p.m.
The Silent Angel Memorial was founded in 2002 by Mrs. Eileen Bildman, after her son Kevin was tragically murdered in St. Mary’s County in November of 2001.  During the ceremony, the families of homicide victims place an angel ornament on a Christmas Tree, and the name of each victim is read. Each ornament has the name of the victim, date of birth, and the date they became a “Silent Angel.” 
The hope has been to bring the community together for a memorial service that provides comfort and support to the survivors of homicide.  The foundation is non-profit and is supported solely by the community and sponsored by the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office.
