Tis the season! Write your letters to Santa and we will deliver them to the North Pole! Beginning November 29th, Santas Mailbox will be on display at the Walker Park Rec Center. Santa will personally write back to each child who writes him a letter, provided all letters are received by December 8th at 5pm (it takes a while to get them to the North Pole!). Santa can only send letter to children who include the following: a self-addressed, stamped envelope with the childs full name, address, city and zip code - and of course their letter and wish list.
