The “North Pole Express Mailbox”, located at the Coronado Community (1845 Strand Way) is a direct route to Santa’s house. So stop by the Community Center between December 1st-15th and deposit your letters to Santa. Make sure to address all letters to: Santa Claus, North Pole Express Mail. Also, since at this time of year Santa’s rushed for time, be sure to include a self-addressed stamped envelope with your letter. For more information contact the Coronado Recreation Department at
