Letters to Santa

The Lions Club of Vermont in District 201V5, Victoria, coordinates the Letter s to Santa project each year.  Interested Clubs purchase the letter packs from Vermont Lions and pass them to local school children.  The children pen a personal note to Santa.  Volunteers, including our Club members, assist in preparing letters of reply to school children in nearby schools.

Examples of letters received from the children are:

"Dear Santa, I hope you are up for the job. Can you please get me a mountain bike. What is it like at the North Pole? Is it snowing or hailing? Is Mrs Claus going to make lots of cookies for the elves and you? One question. Are your reindeer up for the job? How long does it take to go around the world?"

"Dear Santa.  For Christmas I wish for lots and lots of Smiggle things, a bike and an iPad mini and some blinges. I will have some carrots for the reindeers. You will get cookies and milk just for you. You have been on hard journeys all the time. I thank your helpers. They are doing good and I don't want to be on the naughty list please Santa. P.S. You are the greatest man. You can have anything you want from me because your giving me everything."
