ASHLAND -- The Coffy family, Mayor Matt Miller and others unveiled a "Letters to Santa" mailbox at Ashland's Corner Park Friday, Dec. 6.
Children who drop letters -- with return addresses -- to Santa Claus in the mailbox until Saturday, Dec. 21 might get a letter back from the North Pole.
As many as possible are expected to be answered before the jolly man in the red suit gets especially busy in the days right before Christmas.
"Up north they get pretty busy preparing for Christmas the closer we get," Chris Coffy said.
Approximately a month ago, she, Greg Gault and Kathy Hout had came up with the idea to bring the mailbox to Ashland. They worked together with several community businesses, the Ashland Kiwanis Club and the entire Coffy family to make the vision a reality.
"Let's see what kind of energy this spurs in Ashland," Chris Coffy said.
Elves are expected to pick up the letters every evening and deliver them to the North Pole.
