Valentine's Day is going to leave a few people in Santa Cruz with some extra sparkle in their lives—and on their fingers.
If you get engaged tomorrow, you'll want to find a creative way to share the news with your family and friends.
What you may not know is that you can break the good news right here on Patch.
Our announcements section lets you post free updates about engagements, weddings, births and graduations, right here on Patch. You can upload your cute engagement pics and post the link on your Facebook page. Your friends and family can even leave you congratulatory comments as a lasting reminder of your exciting news.
You can also post announcements if you're trying to raise money for a fundraiser, publicize an award you or your organization has won, or if you want to remember a loved one through an obituary.
All are free on Patch, and if you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org when you upload your announcement, I will feature it on the home page. What better way to let the world know your news?
