Happy Valentines Day ! Living in Loveland, hearts are everywhere on light posts, hanging from trees, people wearing heart costumes and blinking heart pins and necklaces and of course there is the Valentine Program.
The Valentine Program has been around for 70 years and it is internationally renowned the Valentine Re-mailing Program teaming up with the United States Postal Service. Stamped valentines arrive in Loveland to receive the official Loveland stamp and the Loveland postal cancellation stamp. There are different drop off locations around the city to drop your stamped valentines. Then area volunteers, who have been on a waiting list for as long as 8 years, stamp your valentines. You can read more about it here. The Sweetheart City, Loveland Colorado Valentine Re-mailing Program.

Scott Freeman a local artist created a large painting last year using several unpainted squares that he sketched along with several volunteers to create spaces to be painted. Then at the Loveland Fire & Ice Festival participants painted on the square, using paints that were denoted on the square but of their choice using light, medium, and dark hues of paint as specified. The mystery painting has not been revealed yet but here are some highlights from last year 2017. #MonaLoveland #DoveLand Scott Freeman Art
