Anniversary Announcement


Anniversary photographs are published free of charge for couples celebrating their 15th anniversary, and for every five years thereafter (20th, 25th, 30th, etc.) After 50 years, anniversaries will be published for every year.

Simply complete the form, attach photo and click submit; or complete the form, print and mail or drop it off at The Crescent-News office at 624 W. Second St., Defiance.

Only a current photo of the couple will be published.

Printed color photos are $30. Black-and-white photos are free.

Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope to have your photo returned by mail or come to The Crescent-News office between 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. to pick up your photo.

Anniversary announcements are published throughout the week. Announcements being published in the weekday edition must be in the office one week prior to publication.
