Fidelity, Illinois

While Loveland, Colorado; Valentine, Texas; Kissimmee, Florida; Romeo, Michigan; and Juliet, Georgia garner most of the Valentine's Day media attention this month; Fidelity, Illinois got a nice mention by the Associated Press over the weekend.

According to the AP, each year, a couple hundred Valentine's Day mailing requests find their way to the small town just north of St. Louis, MO. With a population of 115, it is little more than a trailer park but its name has made it quite well-known.

Shown above is Fidelity Postmaster Peggy Ruyle holding some of the hundreds of requests from around the world for the town's postmark.
"At this time of year, Ruyle absolutely loves her job and her small role in keeping romance alive, one postmark at a time," reports the AP.
