Shimkus accepting Valentines for Heroes

   U.S. Rep. John Shimkus (R-Illinois) is once again asking his constituents in Lawrence County and around the district to participate in his annual Valentines for Heroes program. The congressman’s district offices will collect valentines for distribution throughout the region to veterans and those currently serving in the military until Friday, February 8th. Valentines should be signed without a last name and without being addressed to any specific person. Envelopes should not contain a return address and should not be sealed.

Valentines may be dropped off or mailed to Shimkus at any of his district offices:

  • 15 Professional Park Drive, Maryville, IL 62062

  • City Hall Room 12, 110 E. Locust Street, Harrisburg, IL 62946
