The Craig Daily Press is pleased to announce that it will have some very special guests this week.
Santa and Mrs. Claus will stop by the Daily Press on Wednesday afternoon as part of the newspaper’s Letters to Santa event. Children can get a specially designed letter and coloring sheet to fill with their Christmas wishes either at the Daily Press office or inside the newspaper itself.
General Manager Renee Campbell said she is excited to host the get-together again after last year’s turnout of nearly 500 local kids.
“It was so much fun seeing their smiling faces as they anticipated sitting on Santa’s lap and telling him their Christmas wish list,” she said. “We couldn’t make this event so successful without our sponsors. A huge ‘thank you’ to them for making this possible.”
Refreshments will be available for everyone thanks to Bank of Colorado, and Quality Plus One Hour Photo will sell photo packages.
If you’re unable to bring your list to Santa in person, drop it off at the Daily Press, Bank of Colorado or Walgreens or email it to santa@CraigDailyPress.com by Wednesday, and it will be delivered promptly to Kris Kringle himself.
Letters also will be printed in the Christmas Eve edition of the paper.
For more information, call 970-824-7031.
