Letters from Santa - 2020


    We are excited to announce a new FREE non-contact event!  It is very simple to participate.  Complete the registration form (which will be available beginning November 9), drop it off at the Park Office or email your form directly Recreation Director Pam Carroll pcarroll@cityoflaportein.gov before the deadline of December 11.  "Santa" will mail a personalized letter through the United States Postal Service.  So if you have a child who has been really good or a child who maybe on the naughty list, this Free service will be a little extra reminder that Santa is watching!
