Committee Chairs: Maryann Pescatore & Paula Oliveri
A new red mailbox was sent up in the gazebo on Waltham Common that accept letters to Santa during the holiday season. The program is sponsored by the Waltham Women's Club. Two of Santa's elves, Maryann and Paula from WCAC-TV, helped get the box built and and also helped St. Nick with all of the letters he'll received. - From the article in Daily Newstribune.
This year, 300 letters from Santa were sent to local children. They were very optimistic about the project and thought 300 was a large number for the first year. There are stamps and letters for 200 as a start for next year’s holiday season. The Mayor will store the mailbox with other Xmas decorations, and there are plans for new lettering for the mailbox next year.
