Santa is coming to town! This year, instead of visiting individual neighborhoods, the Department of Public Safety is visiting more central locations aimed at drawing the community out to partake in festivities.
Donations of new unwrapped toys will be accepted during these events, for our 2011 Christmas Toy Program, or can be delivered to any city facility. All toys collected will be distributed to local families within the Rohnert Park city limits. Here are the Santa Sleigh dates:
