Helping Hands Ornament
Since 1986 the Helping Hands Committee, comprised of Town of Estes Park employees, has created commemorative holiday ornaments each year for purchase by the public. The proceeds from ornament sales are used to provide college scholarships for high school seniors and assistance for local families in need. The 2016 ornament commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Estes Valley Library by featuring a great horned owlet. A pair of great horned owls frequently nests on the cliff of the Knoll-Willows Nature Preserve near the library. The photo was taken by late local photographer Dick Orleans. Ornaments are available for $12 each at the following locations:
• Estes Park Town Hall, 170 MacGregor Ave.
• Estes Park Visitor Center, 500 Big Thompson Ave.
• Estes Park Senior Center, 220 Fourth St.
• Peak Hallmark, Upper Stanley Village
Ornaments may also be ordered by mail. Send your request and payment (checks only, please) to the Town of Estes Park Helping Hands Committee at P.O. Box 1200 in Estes Park, CO 80517. Please calculate your order total to include shipping costs. Shipping for one ornament is $4.25, shipping for two ornaments is $5, shipping for three ornaments is $9.25 and shipping for four ornaments is $10.
A limited number of ornaments from previous years are also available at Town Hall.
