Please add Holiday Park neighborhood to the schedule if you can 🙏. Thank you for all the hard work and dedication you do.

We look forward to seeing Santa every year! Thank you for doing this, especially need it this year!

I'm not telling you anything you don't already know, but there is a surge upon a surge upon a surge and kids need to be reminded to wear masks and socially distance. Can you try to add more side streets to the routes so there's less crowding perhaps?

For the past two years, there were mix-ups coming to Kengar as to times and dates. Nobody knew anything. The trucks went so fast. Mertford St. didn't get anything, yet there are maybe 20 kids there. (some now grown). All I'm asking is for you to give notice ahead of time (Dec 10 will be your announcement) so that the info can be put out on the listserv and time for word of mouth so Santa can get a rousing reception this time. The 10th is next Thursday.
