Santa's Mailbox

Submit your letter to Santa through our Santa's Mailbox!

You can print out and use our letter template, pick up a letter template at the Community Center during regular Guest Services hours, or use your own stationary to write Santa.

Bring your letter for Santa to the Community Center between November 28 - December 14, 2022. No postage is required - Santa picks the letters up himself - but we need a return address so the big man can write you back!

The mailbox will be set up in the foyer of the Robert W. Rolek Community Center at 814 Hart Rd., Round Lake, and is accessible during regular Guest Services hours.
