Mrs. Claus, Patricia Schuler of Santa Claus, left, looked on as Angie Brooks of Jasper helped granddaughter Chloe Vincent of Jasper, 5, write a letter to Santa Claus during a workshop Wednesday evening at the Jasper Public Library annex. One of the questions on the letter form sparked a conversation between Brooks and her granddaughter about giving to those in need. “Help if you can. I try to pass that on to my kids and grandkids,” Brooks said.


Children handed their letters to Mrs. Claus during the workshop.
