Galena holiday events

Drop your letter to Santa Claus in this mailbox in Galena anytime after Dec. 4.

GALENA — The Town of Galena invites you to attend Deck the Halls at town hall at 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4.

Come out to see the new decorations at town hall, wave to Santa and Mrs. Claus and drop your letter to Santa in the North Pole Express Mailbox. The rain date Dec. 5.

You can drop your letter off any time after Dec. 4. All letters received by Dec. 17 will make it to Santa in time for Christmas.
