If kids haven't had a chance to visit with Santa yet this holiday season, there is an opportunity for a direct line to the Jolly Old Elf: By telephone.

The Perham Lions will be making "Santa Calls" from December 14 through Dec. 23. Families who would like Santa Claus to call, just fill out a form and send it in. Lions members will call or email the parent in advance to verify that the request is legitimate before children are called.

To reserve a phone conversation with Santa, go to the new page, and click on the "Santa Calls" page, then click on

Information might include their favorite subject in school; their favorite food; their favorite teacher; what kind of music they like and who are their favorite artists or groups, activities or sports; do they play an instrument; who is their favorite athlete; pet's name; and also what they want for Christmas.

The Perham Lions will try to make this call from "Santa Claus" as fun and memorable as possible for your child,
