Calling all families! Children can visit with Santa from 10 a.m. to noon Nov. 10 at the Cape Coral Central Post Office, at 1030 S.E. Ninth Ave.
Santa will pose for pictures in front of a snowy North Pole backdrop, while Photo Elf Leo takes family photos. The digital photos will be e-mailed to the family.
The annual holiday family program is free.
Santa is coming early this year because he wants families to have plenty of time to get those holiday greetings in the mail. Santa is suggesting that the photo can be used to order holiday cards or photo stamps for greetings.
The holiday family program will include a Letters to Santa writing station for children - tell them to be thinking of their message for Santa. Children will also have a craft opportunity, an opportunity to learn how to start a stamp collection, obtain a face tattoo and complete a holiday maze.
Parents can learn how to take advantage of discounted holiday shipping rates. Parents can also learn about the second annual Operation Santa Mail program.
Mr. Zip's tip
Mail is reliable, trusted and secure - federal laws protecting the sanctity of the U.S. Mail are enforced by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
