Birthday Announcement

The Seward County Independent, Milford Times, Friend Sentinel, Wilber Republican and Crete News will print free birthday notices beginning at the 75th when open houses or card showers are planned. Birthdays for 90 years and older may be run annually but must be resubmitted each year.

Free notices will be printed one time at each interval and follow a standard news format. Any submitted information will be rewritten as needed to follow that format. Paid ads are available for celebrations not meeting the requirements listed above or if the submitting party desires more personal language (i.e. “We love you,” “Congratulations!” “Love, your family.”) If multiple publication dates are requested, only one free notice will be granted; all others must be in the form of a paid ad. Because our publications are general circulation, only events of a public nature will be included in advance of the event. To place an ad, call (402) 643-3676.

Photos may be included with written permission from the photographer. Printed photos will be returned if a self-addressed, stamped envelope is included. High-resolution digital photos in JPG format may be attached below or emailed to Photos will be printed in black and white, but a color photo is preferred to start with.
