Miss Loveland Valentine Visits Governor
Miss Loveland Valentine Mary Askham visited the state Capitol Monday to meet with the Governor Hickenlooper and Loveland’s state representatives. The senior at Mountain View High School is the 2012 ambassador for Loveland’s Valentine Remailing Program. Mary presented the governor some gifts from the Sweetheart City and he gave her a valentine card to handstamp and mail to his wife.
The Loveland Chamber of Commerce and the Loveland Post Office sponsor the Loveland Valentine Re-mailing Program. Approximately 60 volunteers gather to stamp a special message from the Sweetheart City on valentine cards sent to Loveland from all 50 states and more than 100 countries. The Loveland Chamber put this video together courtesy of YouTube.
