North pole letters
With Halloween now squarely behind us, most of our attentions are turning towards that lovely holiday we call Christmas. Of course, there is still Remembrance Day next week, but for some, Christmas is next on the list. The Compass recently started accepting Santa Letters in hopes the dreams of area children will reach the big man at the North Pole sooner rather than later. Here, Carbonear’s Ava Hopkins drops off the first Santa Letter of the season. She is five-years-old and the daughter of Alicia and Michael Hopkins.
