Times accepting Santa letters

Santa Claus’ little elves are waiting anxiously for Christmas wishes from district children—and the Fort Frances Times wants to help make sure they get to the North Pole on time.
Kids of all ages can drop off their letters to Santa at the Fort Frances Times by this Friday (Dec. 3).
Those who can’t make it to the office can mail their letters to the Fort Frances Times, 116 First St. E., Fort Frances, Ont., P9A 3M7.
Children also can send their wish lists via e-mail at santa@fortfrances.com or clicking on the “Letters to Santa” icon at www.fortfrances.com
“I love it when children write me and tell me all about their family, and their little brothers and sisters,” Santa Claus said this morning from the North Pole.
“Of course, I’ll know if they’ve been naughty or nice,” he chuckled.
Santa noted both Mrs. Claus and his reindeer enjoy it when he reads aloud to them all the letters from the little boys and girls.
Santa said the elves in his workshops are working around the clock to get ready for the big day, but added they can’t be exactly sure what toys they need to make until he gets those letters.
Remember, all letters have to be dropped off by this Friday. That’s when the reindeer will swing by the Times to pick up the bags of letters and e-mails and take them back to the North Pole.
As in previous years, copies of the letters to Santa also will be published in the Fort Frances Times on Dec. 15.
