11/13/14: Santa called from the North Pole to let us know that he, Mrs. Claus or an elf will have a few minutes away from the workshop on Tuesday, December 9th to call your home and chat with your children! He informed us that because of time, only one call will be made to each house and all children will be spoken to at that time. Additionally, because of the time difference between Clare and the North Pole, he cannot guarantee a specific calling time. Register Here.


11/13/14: Santa Claus will be coming to pick up your letters! Leave your postage-free letter along with your return address for Santa, now through December 17th, in Santa’s Mailbox, located in the entrance lobby at Clare City Hall..
