Letters to Santa (All ages)

Santa wants to make sure he hears from all of the children in Wauconda, so he has added another mailbox at the Community Center.  Beginning December 2 through December 13, you may drop off your letter to Santa in his special mailbox.  Remember to include your name and address so Santa can write you back.  No postage required.
