While Santa’s making his list and checking it twice, he’s also checking his mailbox at the Northbrook Park District!

Through Dec. 11, children may drop off letters at Santa’s Mailbox, next to the registration offices at the Leisure Center, 3323 Walters Ave. Letters should include a self-addressed stamped envelope and phone number. Letters also may be mailed to: Santa Claus, c/o Northbrook Park District Leisure Center, 3323 Walters Ave. Northbrook, IL 60062.

“This is a fun activity to get children writing and thinking about their holiday wish lists,” said Nancy Eschker, Recreation Supervisor.

Starting the week of Dec. 10, children will receive a letter and phone call. Calls will come from either Santa or one of his helper elves.
