In front of Fulda Area Credit Union is a new little building set-up for the Christmas Season. Santa’s Workshop is the place in Fulda for children to deliver their letters to Santa. The door of Santa’s Workshop has a mail slot and letters to Santa can be delivered there until December 17th.

The designer and contractor of Santa’s Workshop is David Baumhoefner of Fulda Insurance Agency.

“It was something that I wanted to do for Christmas 2012, but was unable to construct it due to my grandmother’s fall and her death. I put Santa’s Workshop on hold and decided that I would build it this year. I had visited last year with Jerry and Cindy Steiner at Fulda Lumber. They had graciously offered to donate the materials for Santa’s Workshop,” Baumhoefner explained. “When I stopped there this year, they still had the plans for Santa’s Workshop and were still willing to donate the materials to construct it, which I was extremely thankful for.”

Fulda Lumber delivered the materials to Baumhoefner’s home the week before Thanksgiving. Baumhoefner started the construction of Santa’s Workshop on Thanksgiving Day. “I was on-call for the ambulance. Michelle and our children were going out of town to relatives for Thanksgiving and I took that time to spend working on Santa’s Workshop.”

At one point, Baumhoefner became so involved in working on the little building that he did not realize that his fingers and a toe had become frostbitten. “I was enjoying myself a lot seeing the workshop progressing and didn’t realize about the frostbite. The fingers and toe are ok now again, although they are a bit more sensitive than normal,” Baumhoefner said.
