The Christmas Holiday is a time when many families come together to celebrate. It can also be a time of sadness for some that are missing a loved one. Lodge 52 want to provide a symbol to honor the sacrifice these families made and to provide a personal momentum of that sacrifice after the holiday.
Each an Ornament is made with the name of each officer that died in the line of duty during the year, it will be hung on the tree at Christmas in the Park in San Jose California. The ornament is collected and delivered to the officer’s department and asked it to be forwarded to the family.
The tree is a memorial to officers that lost their lives as a result of service to their communities. We thank the Wayne Summers family for funding the Line of Duty ornaments each year the other donors and our members who make it possible to display the tree.
Those that would like to donate to the tree may contribute the tree on our website. A ornament maybe purchased with the officer the will be hung and shipped to the donor. A custom ornament with department may also be purchased.
