Submit anniversary announcement

The Itemizer-Observer publishes wedding anniversary information for residents of Polk County at no charge.

Anniversaries published begin with those that have reached the 25th year and beyond, in five year increments only. Forms are available in the newspaper office and on-line. Couples are encouraged to submit a current or original wedding photograph to go with their announcement. Photos and announcements must be submitted at the same time and may be brought to the office during business hours, or dropped in the employee door drop slot. Announcements may also be e-mailed to, and photos may be e-mailed to, all with proper identifying information.

The Itemizer-Observer is not responsible for obtaining pictures from photography studios. Submission deadline is before 5 p.m. Thursday to be considered for the following Wednesday issue. Every effort is made to get the announcement in before a reception or similar event. To submit on-line, fill in the form below. Please note: Each submission must have a contact name and daytime telephone number should clarification be needed. If the contact person cannot be reached for needed clarification, the Itemizer will not publish the announcement. For more information, call 503-623-2373.
