NORTH POLE MAIL: Evelyn Teel, 3, is the first to drop her letter to Santa in the North Pole-bound mail box at the Idyllwild Post Office. Helping Santa are post office employees Julie Stanford and Christina Reitz (front), Kelsi Lehman, Postmaster Kelly Gates, Mom Theresa Teel and John Aussenhofer. The mail box will be in the Idyllwild Post Office lobby until Friday, Dec. 12, for children to send Santa their Christmas wishes. Santa allows the Town Crier to print the letters in the Christmas edition for readers to enjoy.
