A note from Ruby the Elf!

It’s another year of Christmas holidays on Orcas Island, and the elves from Emmanuel Episcopal’s Santa Brigade look forward to rounding up some letters from the kiddies on your fair island!

Here’s the plan:

• Letter collection began Nov. 20.

• The mailbox is in front of the sign at the Emmanuel Episcopal Church

• We recommend that an adult write out the child’s full name and address (and include a phone # for any questions) within a closed letter – no stamp necessary!

• Send drawings! We love them!

• Drop the sealed letter in the mailbox

• Letters will be picked up until Friday, Dec. 17 for a response prior to the Big Show!

We don’t want to disappoint and hope to hear from more wee folks. Won’t you help us spread the word?
