The deadline is nearing for Valentine’s Day Sweeties to appear in the February 12 edition of the Lamar Democrat. This has been a very popular section in year’s past and hopes are that it will continue to be this year, and in coming years. This is the prime opportunity for grandparents to brag on and show off their grandchildren, which from first hand experience is easy to do.
In order for us to publish these Valentines all we need is a picture of the child, or children, their name, age and where they reside, as well as the grandparent’s names and where they live. Forms are available at the Democrat office. Many people do not realize that we have moved from our old location, but we did last July and are comfortably settled in at 100 E. 11th St., just off the southeast corner of the Lamar Square. The cost is $15 per Valentine, unless there are several children, then it would cost according to the size.
Valentines can also be e-mailed to us with the above information, as well as the picture, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is Friday, Feb. 7, so make sure to get those grandchildren represented. For more information you can reach me at 417-682-5529, ext. 60.
