Family Fun and Letters to Santa

Family fun 2

During the recent Festival of Lights Family Fun Day at the Pioneers Museum in Colorado Springs, CO, children had the opportunity to enjoy a variety of events from face painting to balloon animals. They also had the chance to write letters to Santa.

The Postal Service was on hand at the event to give kids the unique experience of sending their special greetings to Santa Claus. Retail Associate Wayne Medina facilitated the experience in which more than 300 kids participated.

“It’s a highlight for me each year,” said Medina who has volunteered at the event for the last 15 years. “I love promoting letter writing to the children. This event really puts us all in the holiday spirit.”

All letters sent by children that contain a return address receive a reply from Santa Claus’ helpers.
