Letters to Santa

A special mailbox for getting your letters to Santa will be available in Town Hall beginning Monday, November 30 until Saturday, December 12. Be sure to include your name and mailing address if you would like to get a letter back from Santa Claus! Write it very clearly so that Santa can read it.  You can write your letter on your own paper and decorate it as much as you wish, or you can use this handy template to help you make your holiday wish list. Grown-ups, if you want to see your child’s wish list, please make a copy before putting it in the mailbox.
