Send Santa your wish list

We’ve gotten together with our friends over at The North Pole, to help us make sure all of your letters make it to the Big Guy before Christmas.

Drop off your letters to Santa by Sunday, December 18th in our Christmas house drop box by the town clock. His team of elves will pick them up and get them to The North Pole for you.

While you’re dropping off your letter, be sure to take a few minutes to check out all of the awesome window decorations that our local businesses have set up!  Voting opens soon, stay tuned for updates!

P.S. – Parents, make sure you include your address on the letter, so Santa can send a letter back. It’s a busy time of year for him, so having your address written down will speed up the process for him.
