Loveland Post Offices still stamping Valentine's cards

LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) - Volunteers in Loveland are still stamping Valentine's Day cards sent to the northern Colorado city for its romantic postmark.
For 66 years, people from around the world have been sending
pre-addressed and stamped cards to Loveland to be postmarked and re-mailed to their loved ones. However, some people request that their cards not be stamped until Feb. 14.
Loveland Chamber of Commerce spokeswoman Nicole Yost says an
estimated 150,000 valentines have come in this year. She said
Tuesday that cards will probably still trickle in through the end
of the month.
Each year, about 175,000 cards pass through the city from across the country and over 100 countries.
They're also stamped with a verse, known as a cachet, that
changes each year.
