CONWAY — The Conway Recreation Department, in partnership with the Friends of Conway Rec., will host the 10th annual "Letters to Santa" Friday, Dec. 13, from 5:30-7 p.m. at the new Conway Recreation Department in Conway Villae within the Kennett Middle School.

This event is recommended for newborn to fourth-grade children from Conway and Albany although all children are welcome.

“Children are encouraged to bring their letter to Santa to be put in our mailbox and sent just in time to reach the North Pole," Michael Lane, assistant recreation director, said.

Lane said Santa will be on hand for pictures. In addition, kids can decorate a Christmas ornament, decorate cookies, prepare reindeer food and enjoy hot chocolate. All children who attend can expect a letter and picture back from Santa. There will also be Christmas classic movies and music playing in rooms around the recreation department.

This event is free.

"We've done pretty well in the past in terms of turnout," Lane said. "It's become extremely popular. We're hoping for another good crowd and Santa is looking forward to seeing the children."
