Santa's Mailbox

The Department of Parks and Recreation, under the direction of Commissioner Tom DiMaggio, is pleased to announce that Santa’s mailbox will be set up on the Lyndhurst Town Hall lawn by Monday, November 27th, 2017.

It is a special mailbox that goes directly to Santa’s Workshop in the North Pole.  Please do remember that Santa needs the children’s last name and addresses to answer all the letters, so make sure it is included before putting it in the mailbox!  He was very sad that he couldn’t answer some letters last year.

Also note that since Santa will be getting much busier closer to Christmas, he cannot take any mail after Sunday, December 17th.

Santa hopes to hear from you soon!!
