Santa has a mailbox in Antioch!

Wednesday, December 4th, 2019

Boys and girls are invited to write a personal letter to Santa this year. A special mailbox at the Antioch Community Center accepts letters for Santa directly! Parents and grandparents can bring letters to the Communtiy Center, 4703 Lone Tree Way until December 16, 2019. The Antioch Council of Teens helps Santa get his letters personally, and Santa will respond directly to each child.

All letters should include the child’s full name and the address where Santa can send his response. This year is the fourth year Santa has dropped off a mailbox in Antioch, which gives young children a unique holiday experience including happy smiles when they receive their very own letter in the mail.

For more information about this free community program call the Antioch Recreation Department, 925-776-3050.

In honor of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, we invite you to attend the annual “Eye of Diablo” beacon lighting ceremony to pay tribute to and honor our veterans, Saturday, Dec. 7 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Cost is free and the event will be held at Cal State East Bay – Concord Campus, 4700 Ygnacio Valley Road in Concord,

Every year since 1964, the Pearl Harbor survivors and their families have memorialized Pearl Harbor Day by relighting the historic Beacon atop Mount Diablo’s summit. When those who experienced Pearl Harbor are gone, the history is lost with them. That tragedy should never happen again, “Lest We Forget.”

“When that beacon light is turned on, that’s a tribute to those individuals that lost their lives at Pearl Harbor,” said Earl “Chuck” Kohler, Pearl Harbor Survivor

The Pearl Harbor Survivors and Save Mount Diablo are grateful for the assistance and support from Mount Diablo State Park, CCTV, California State University East Bay Concord Campus, Vietnam Helicopters Museum and the Sons & Daughters of Pearl Harbor Survivors.
