By now the kids should have their Christmas list complete and ready to send to Santa Clause at the North Pole. Bring their letters to the Ilion Free Public Library. Be sure each letter includes the child's name and mailing address.Remember how much fun it was being a kid? Sometimes I wish I could go back and do it all over again, no responsibility, no bills. All I had to worry about was getting to school on time and being on time for dinner.

One of my fondest memories was making out a Christmas list, Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year. I can remember putting all the big things at the top of the list with a circle around them to make sure Santa did not miss anything.

By now your little ones probably have their lists done and ready to send out. You have until Sunday the 16th to drop them off at the Ilion Free Public Library. It's Santa's mail box right in front of the entrance to the library. All letters collected in the box will be sent "special delivery" to the North Pole.  Need more information? Call 894-5028. Have a Merry Christmas!
