Send a letter to Santa
Have a wish list for Santa Claus? Send it to The Smithfield Times and not only will it be forwarded to the jolly old elf himself, but also it will be printed in the Dec. 23 edition of the newspaper.
The Smithfield Times invites Isle of Wight and Surry County children to send in their letters to Santa, as well as original art, for publication in the paper.
The deadline is at noon Monday, Dec. 14.
Letters can be emailed to email@example.com or mailed to Santa, c/o The Smithfield Times, PO Box 366, Smithfield, VA 23431 or can be delivered in person to the special Santa mailbox at the office at 228 Main St. in downtown Smithfield.
