With Love from Loveland

Staff writer Lisa Coalwell of the Times-Call News Group, reports dozens of senior citizens and post office volunteers hand-stamped more than 6,000 envelopes in less than an hour at the kick off of the 2007 Loveland, Colorado Valentine Remailing Program.

"For the next two weeks, the volunteers will handle an estimated 215,000 valentines from all over the world, stamping them with a special cachet verse and art, and hand-canceling “chunkies” — thick envelopes — and delicate items, such as hand-sewn fabric postcards sent by a Nebraska resident," writes Coalwell.

For delivery by Feb. 14, valentines going to U.S. addresses must be received in Loveland by Feb 9. Place them in a larger envelope and mail to;

Loveland Valentine Remailing
Loveland, CO 80538.

Donations to help with volunteer expenses are welcomed.
