Kringleville's 44th Season
Dear Friends of Kringleville,
Yes, my friends, my Elves have been hard at work in Downtown Waterville, Maine, making sure my visit with you will be extra special this year. Some wonderful changes will be happening to make your visit with me more comfortable and special in 2013. This year, all of you will be able to visit me in the REM Forum at The Center (in the building formerly known as Stern’s). My new home away from home will be in the front window of The Center. This will be reminiscent of my old house from the 1970’s, when passersby were able to see children and families visiting with me. Although steeped in tradition, I do believe there is a time for change and improvement. I truly believe this new space will be just as wonderful an experience. We will still be located in the center of town, but this year there will be many wonderfully fun activities for everyone to experience and see while waiting to visit with me. Best of all, this will allow everyone to have a magical time at Kringleville while remaining warm and dry. We are hoping this new opportunity helps with the excessive wait times we’ve had these last couple years as well. Nothing else will change! Our friends form Central Maine Photography will once again be taking photos. Mrs. Claus will even have her own weekly visiting hours at Kringleville. Kringleville Keepsake Ornaments will once again be available for purchase, with proceeds helping to sustain the wonderful tradition that is Kringleville. Of course, once outside, everyone is invited to walk through Castonguay Square and see the beautiful lights and to sit in my sleigh (don't forget to visit all my friends on Main Street and in Downtown Waterville). Just know that whether in my cottage or in our new location at The Center, our visit together will be full of Love and Magical Memories.
So my friends, until we meet in my new home, know that I am watching you always. Continue to do your best at all times and never forget that Ole Santa loves you to infinity and beyond. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Your Friend Forever,
