Day 354, Monday, December 20

This is one of my favorite ornaments. It is a Rolan Johnson. Rolan Johnson was a local printer who designed and printed his own Christmas Card every year. In 1995, he granted permisson for the Sisters to produce a limited number of gold plated ornaments as a fund raiser to benefit their retirement fund. Rolan has since passed and the family has allowed the Sisters to continue producing the ornaments. They are dated each year. The front and the back are printed the same. Each ornament is a reproduction of a Christmas Card that Rolan created.
