We print anniversary announcements starting with the 25th and in increments of five thereafter. Anniversary announcements should be submitted no later than two weeks before the celebration. In cases of those wishing to announce a recent celebration, the event must have occurred no longer than one month prior to the submission. If more announcements are received than space permits, as many will be printed as possible, with others appearing in a future edition.

All articles will be edited to conform to newspaper style.

Photographs may be picked up after the announcement runs in the paper, or may be mailed back if a SASE is provided. Photographs are kept on file for 30 days after publication. The newspaper cannot be held responsible for lost or damaged photographs and those not mailed back or picked up within the time frame.
