The BAHS presents at CoBACH until December 23 - " Letters to Santa"
The post office receives many letters to Santa. During the years of 1988 to 2012, the Postmaster of Brighton, Mr. Emil Engel, not only received the letters, but answered back to all of the children that wrote to Santa, using his own "Santa" letterhead stationary and stamps. Parents would send a thank you note to him thanking him for the letters back to the children. The letters are pretty much individualized and humorous. This past summer, Mr Engel passed the letters collected onto the Brighton Area Historical Society, and we have displayed them at CoBACH. We hope all of you enjoy reading them and feel free to look through the boxes of letters. If you find yours, a family member or a friend's letter, feel free to take the letter.
We also have a large portion of a Christmas candle collection that we are giving away for free, courtesy of Bruce Ritter and his wife.
*** Thank you Mindy Kinsey and team members for the display.***
