Santa Claus Calling from the North Pole

Hey Parents of Young Children, 
Santa Claus contacted us at Salem Parks and Rec (Hey, we have a special connection to the big guy at the North Pole, ok?!), and he wanted us to share with you that he will be making phone calls to children on Monday, December 17th. If you want Santa to give your kid(s) a call, please PRINT and fill out this form and return it Salem Parks and Rec before December 14th. Forms are being sent home with elementary school children in the Salem School District. We'll also have Santa Calling Forms available in the Salem Public Library and the Salem Parks and Rec building at 620 Florida St. Ho, Ho, Ho!
