Letters to Santa

The Christmas committee has been contacted by Santa Claus asking if they could help him receive letters from area children. Committee members located a mailbox and decorated it for those special letters. Santa’s Mailbox will be positioned near the entrance of the Welcome Center in the Thomas Jefferson Gardens. Children are invited to write their wishes and thoughts for Santa starting December 1 through December 23. Because the letters are hand delivered, they don’t even need a stamp! The children can expect a letter back from Santa if they include a return address. Those attending the Christmas Tree Lighting in the Thomas Jefferson Gardens on Thursday, December 6 may want to bring their letters with them. Even though the kids can visit personally with Santa at the Bell Tower that evening, it is best to have the requests in writing for Santa to get on his list. The Christmas committee is overjoyed to offer this personal service for Santa this year and hope it can continue for years to come.

Angie Reese-Hueser is the chairperson of the Christmas committee and can be contacted for questions about Letters to Santa. This committee is made up of members of Thomas Jefferson Gardens, Jefferson Matters: Main Street, Friends of the Library and Greene County Chamber & Tourism.
