The Loveland Valentine Re-Mailing Program stamps and resends over 160,000 Valentine's Day each year to recipients all over the world. This year the stamps reflects the struggles that the "Sweetheart City" and the surrounding communities suffered due the floods of September 2013.
From the Sweetheart City
Scenic, Safe and Strong
Comes a flood of Valentine wishes
To you, where they belong.
Since 1947 the Loveland post office and 60 volunteer stampers in cooperation with the Loveland Chamber of Commerce, have been expressing love sentiments with a special cachet stamp and message through the program. Some of the most heartfelt valentines that have come through Loveland are the ones sending messages to our troops overseas, to children battling life-threatening illnesses and to people who are overcoming tragedy.
If you would like to get a special stamp for your loved one, pre-address and pre-stamp all valentines, enclose them in a larger first class envelope and mail to:
Postmaster - Attention Valentines
446 E. 29th St.
Loveland, CO 80538-9998
Once the post office receives your valentines, they will remove it from the envelope, stamp it with the special Loveland stamp and send it off to your valentine. All foreign mail must be received in Loveland by Feb. 4, all U.S. mail must be received by Feb. 7, and all Colorado mail must be received by Feb. 10 to ensure delivery by Valentine’s Day.
