Once again, this year the Kiwanis Club of Molalla, along with ACE hardware, will be heading the Santa Letter project. All children in the Community are welcome to participate and ask Santa what they would enjoy seeing under their Christmas tree this year.
The program runs through Dec. 20. Be sure to include a return address for Santa to answer back. He has so many letters that it is easier for him if he has the right return address. There will be mail boxes posted at ACE Hardware. Be sure to drop them there in plenty of time for an answer. Kiwanis and Ace wish all a merry Christmas.
