The ornaments should be sent to: Governor's Office, Beth Reeds Hofherr, State Capitol, Room 218, Jefferson City, MO, 65101. The names and addresses of the persons sending the ornaments should be sent along with the ornaments so the Holdens can express their appreciation. The ornaments will not be returned.
