How do I love thee? Enough to send you a valentine from the Love Capital of the World!
The Loveland Chamber of Commerce has kicked off their annual valentine re-mailing program, the largest program of its kind. The 2017 cachet (as seen below) will adorn all 130,000 Valentines that come through Loveland’s Valentine Re-Mailing Program . It was designed by Corry McDowell and the cachet verse was written by Richard Schilling.
To get this special cachet message, send your pre-addressed, pre-stamped valentine in an enclosed, larger 1st Class envelope. Then send all envelopes to:
Postmaster – Attention Valentines
446 E. 29th St.
Loveland, CO 80538-9998
Once received, valentines will be removed from the larger envelope and will be stamped with the special Loveland cachet stamp and postmark before being re-mailed to its intended recipient. All U.S. mail must be received by Feb. 7, and all Colorado mail must be received by Feb. 9 to ensure delivery by Valentine’s Day. Colorado residents can drop off their valentines at any local King Soopers or City Market stores by Feb. 1. Participants are encouraged to send their valentines to Loveland as soon as possible.
Since 1946, the chamber, the Loveland post office and 60 volunteer stampers have been bringing love, hope and sentiments to people in all 50 states and more than 110 countries with a special cachet stamp and message through the program. Valentines get mailed each year from mothers to sons, grandfathers to granddaughters and everyone in between. Famous athletes, celebrities and even the president often get valentines stamped with Loveland’s special message. Some of the most heartfelt valentines that have come through Loveland are the ones sending messages of hope and love to our troops overseas, to children battling life-threatening illnesses and to those who are overcoming tragedy and need an extra note of encouragement.
