Letters To Santa 2018

3rd Annual  "Letters to Santa"

Timeline for Letters: December 1 through December 21, 2018

The holidays are here and Santa wants to know what you want!

Join Bookmans Entertainment Exchange East 6230 E. Speedway Blvd. on Saturday December 1st, from Noon to 2 PM, and write your very own free letter to Saint Nick himself! This event is 100% free and open to all ages and we will be providing all crafting materials!

Bookmans is partnering with our good friends from Alex’s Little Free Library here in Tucson who know Santa personally! They even have a mailbox at their Little Free Library where you can drop off your letter to Santa.

Make sure to include your name and address on the envelope so you can get a personalized response with gift from jolly ol’ Saint Nicholas (letters must be dropped off at the mailbox no later than December 21st in order to receive a personalized response from Santa)!

Santa’s mailbox is right next to Alex’s Little Free Library on 4041 East 3rd Street so make sure you grab a free book as well!

Peter Howell Neighborhood 2018 Yard Sales

Dear Peter Howell Neighbors,

This coming Saturday March 24 is our annual Peter Howell Neighborhood Association Yard Sale. This year I will be hosting the tables at my home, 4002 E 4th St, with donated items to be sold to benefit our neighborhood association.


So far I have only heard from 3 people who will be bringing items for our table. I know everyone has something/s that they want to get rid of and that there is someone out there who will want to buy it. I will make it easy for you. I will be home (4002 E 4th St, SE corner at Longfellow) the following times for drop off.
Weds 11-3
Thurs 12-5
Friday 12-5
If these times don't work, email me at or call 400-8928 and we can work it out for some other time. I have a truck and am willing to pick up large items if you can help to load. This is a really easy way to spring clean and help out the neighborhood too.

Also, we need help putting up signs to bring in customers for the sales. If you are having a sale and want to be sure the signs point your way, call Patricia Martin at 520 365-7877. Signs can be picked up Friday evening and put out then or early Saturday morning before 7. Even if you are not having a sale, we can use your help with this event.

Also, we need one more person to help at the PHNA table on Saturday morning 7-?. The rush always comes in the first few hours, so you probably won't need to stay but for a few hours. It's fun!

I hope to see you soon, before or during the PHNA sale at 4002 E. 4th St. *B-) cool

Here's an updated map of neighborhood locations where yard sales will be held from 7 AM until 1 PM Saturday March 24, 2018. Please let us know of cancelled yard sales.

Letters to Santa

The Rodriguez family on 3rd St wants you to know that Alex's Little Free Library would like to give children from our community a unique and exciting place to drop off their mail for Santa during the holiday season.

This Library is named for one of the Rodriguez' daughters, Alexandra, who is the steward for the library and who weekly refills, stamps and organizes the free books for neighbors to stop by and help themselves. Bring a book to leave when you visit - maybe you'll find a book to take with you to enjoy.

At the Library this holiday season, the 2nd Annual “Letters to Santa”, inspired by The Elf on the Shelf book, is now open. Alexandra & Angelika Santa’s Mailbox is located in front of Alex's Little Free Library, 4041 E. 3rd St. The mailbox was donated by Mrs. Tang - we recycled and decorated it. Letters, which can be addressed to the North Pole, need to be received prior to December 21st in order to receive a personalized response from Santa with a surprise gift included!  Letters must include the child's name, age and address to receive a response. Last year the Rodriguez family sent over 50 personalized letters and gifts!  Fun fact ... Santa’s Mailbox has had some recent snow sightings! Come see for yourself!
