Birthday Announcement

The Daily Journal is pleased to announce milestone birthdays free of charge.

For birthdays, we offer an Announcement starting at 80 years. In addition to the current photo, we encourage you to include a photo of you when you were younger, such as a high school or college photo.

Making your Announcement is easy. Complete this form and send it to The Daily Journal along with your photograph(s). Announcements run in black and white in the milestone section of the Weekend Edition. To ensure timely publication, is needed at least four weeks prior to the event.

Submit this form and attach an electronic photo below. For more information, call (815)802-3891.

Congratulations on your celebration, and thank you for allowing The Daily Journal to serve you.

Please note: Beginning with 90 years, your photo can be included with your announcement.
