Love once again is in the mail and bound for Loveland and Colorado!

Loveland, CO 80538 has the biggest valentine remailing program of any community in the world, in which people request the postmark of a special love-themed named post office and community. (Others include Valentine, NE 69201; Romance, AR 72136; Loving, NM 88256; Romeo, MI 48065 and Juliette, GA 31046.)

Besides the popular LOVELAND valentine pictorial postmark, each envelope and postcard is also stamped with a special Loveland souvenir cachet or art design and love verse. The community and chamber of commerce host an annual contest to select the special cachet and love verse.

To have valentines remailed with the Loveland postmark, enclose your pre-stamped, pre-addressed envelopes (envelopes should each have 49-cent postage; postcards should have 35-cent postage). Add extra postage for heavier/odd-shaped and square valentines. Mail in a large stamped envelope or package with postage to:

Attention Valentines
446 E. 29th St.
Loveland, CO 80538

You can save the cost of the extra stamps and envelopes, however. Judy Anderson, a former resident of Loveland, has arranged drop boxes in businesses around Delta County to make it easy to send a valentine with the Loveland postmark. Simply drop off your card, fully addressed with the appropriate postage, and it will be delivered to Loveland for a special cachet on the envelope.

Valentines will be picked up at the following locations: Hays Drug in Paonia, Feb. 3; City Market in Delta and Hotchkiss, Feb. 6; and Cedaredge FoodTown, Feb. 6.
