This Week in Wills Point History

Friday, December 23, 1960

  “Since there are only three shopping days remaining until Christmas Day, Wills Pointers are hurriedly finishing up their last minute errands. The town was decorated and lit earlier this month for the festive holiday season. A 20 foot fir tree was lighted with bright lights and the Rose Memorial has been lighted and decorated with tinsel.”

  “Letters to Santa Claus: Dear Santa, I am a big boy 4 years old. My sister is two years old. We have tried to be good. Sometimes we fight, but we always stick together, when Daddy and Mommy take over. I would like a holster gun, a road grader and a little bicycle. Sandra wants a baby doll buggy, and a tricycle. I would also like some firecrackers in my stocking. We will be at Pa Pa’s in Wills Point on Christmas Eve. We love you. Steve and Sandra Baker.”

  “Dear Santa, I am a little boy almost three years old and have tried to be a good little boy. Please bring me a guitar, and some nuts and fruit. My little sister, Tanya wants a doll, Boston rocker and anything else you might have for a little girl 18 months old. Don’t forget my Ma Chitty who has moved here with me. Bring her something nice. Love, Randy Chitty.”

  “Dear Santa Claus, Please bring me a Chatty Cathey doll, an etch-a-sketch, a bicycle, and a play typewriter. Don’t forget Wayne and my little baby sister. Her name is Jayme Ann. Please, bring, her a bottle holder. Mama says I have been a good girl. I love you. Lesa Lynn Jamieson.”
