Dozier Elementary's first graders
missed out twice walking to mail their handwritten Santa
Letters in the new "Santa Mailbox" the town leaders and
workers placed at the Erath City Hall for the children.
The first time fell on Friday, December 8, 2017, which
ended up a "very rare" snow day in the Acadiana area. On
Friday, December 15, 2017, once again the 1st grader's
luck ran out when more cold and rainy weather appeared.
After two tries, Santa appeared himself to collect the
excited 1st graders' letters in
person. Shown are
the four 1st grade Dozier Elementary classes with Santa
who picked up their letters personally.
