First Santa let­ters ar­rive

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

Be­fore the end of Oc­to­ber par­ents were al­ready call­ing The Com­pass ask­ing about let­ters to Santa. “ When are you start­ing to print them? When is your dead­line, etc?

Ev­ery year we start run­ning let­ters to Santa as soon as we re­ceive them.

Drake Rose was the first child to have his let­ter in this year. The four-year-old Sal­mon Cove boy dropped his let­ter off at our of­fice last Tues­day, Nov. 3. It ap­pears on Page B7 of this week’s Com­pass.

Last year The Com­pass pub­lished over 600 let­ters to Santa. Be­cause we ex­pect the vol­ume of let­ters to Santa to match or ex­ceed last year’s vol­ume, we ask boys and girls to be like Drake and get your let­ters in early.

Let­ters to Santa will ap­pear in our is­sues of Nov. 17 and 24 along with Dec. 1, 8, 15 and 22, which will be our an­nual Christ­mas is­sue. Please un­der­stand, even if your let­ter is in early, we can­not guar­an­tee which of th­ese is­sues your let­ter will ap­pear.

The fee for pub­lish­ing let­ters is $ 4.50 ( with or without photo). To­tal cost, if you want let­ters lam­i­nated is $ 5.00.

As brief as pos­si­ble

We ask boys and girls to keep their let­ters as brief as pos­si­ble, and we re­serve the right to edit/ shorten all let­ters for space.

Fri­day, Dec. 4 is the dead­line for all let­ters. No let­ters will be ac­cepted for pub­li­ca­tion af­ter that date. Be­cause of the ex­pected vol­ume, we will not be able to re­turn pho­tos this year.
