H.T. Holden releases 2012 RSVP Christmas ornament

ENID, Okla. — Kremlin artist H.T. Holden has released his 2012 Christmas ornament to help raise funds for the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program.

Holden, best-known for his public art sculptures, has designed six collectible ornaments to help raise funds for RSVP.

This year’s ornament, “Rudolph Home on the Range,” is a pewter-based relief of a red-nosed buffalo under a starry night sky on the plains.

The ornaments currently are for sale for $20 at the RSVP office, 602 S. Van Buren. The ornaments also may be purchased at Soapweeds and Cactus, 122 N. Independence, and Way Out West, 4800 W. Garriott.

RSVP executive director Bennie Mullins said the ornament sales help fund RSVP volunteer programs.

RSVP is a corps of more than 1,000 volunteers who provide meals, transportation assistance and errand service for the elderly and home-bound. RSVP volunteers also help in nursing homes, hospitals and schools. RSVP volunteers can be found helping out in more than 120 locations in Enid and five surrounding communities.

In the past year alone, RSVP volunteers have provided more than 47,000 volunteer hours and delivered 500,000 meals in the local community, according to figures provided by Mullins.

For those wanting to collect the Holden Christmas creations, a limited number of ornaments from past years are available at the RSVP office.

For more information on RSVP, contact their office at (580) 233-5914.
