EXETER – The Exeter Parks and Recreation and the Exeter Post Office are pleased to announce that the 36th season of the “Letters To Santa” program will begin soon with assistance from numerous volunteer “elves” such as individuals and civic groups in the area. If you are a good-natured, responsible adult, or teen, who would like to be considered as one of Santa’s letter-writing elves, please contact the Exeter Parks and Recreation office at 32 Court Street, Mon.-Fri., 8:15 a.m.-4:15 p.m. or call 603-773-6151.

Santa will start answering letters beginning December 1. To all parents, grandparents, and well-meaning adults: please let your children write their own letter. Little ones may dictate a letter to a parent. Santa would also love to receive pictures from the children. Please be sure to have the child’s name, age, and full return address on the letter and envelope. Santa and his helpers do try very hard to reply to each and every letter.

This program is free of charge. Sorry, due to the busyness of the season for Santa and his volunteer helpers, only letters from individual children will receive a response. Please do not ask to have letters from Santa written to pets; children deserve Santa’s full attention.

Due to the volume of holiday mail, the final date to send your letter to Santa is Fri., December 19, as Santa wants to be sure all letters are answered and delivered.

To send your letter to Santa, please label the envelope: Santa Claus, c/o Exeter Post Office, 34 Front St., Exeter, NH 03833.

You may also hand-carry your letter to the Exeter Post Office by Mon., December 22. Santa will send a personalized letter back, direct from the North Pole.
