New Arrivals Announcement Form

New Arrivals share information and photographs of babies who are younger than 1 year old. New Arrivals can also announce a child's adoption. The announcements are published in the Sunday Celebrations section. Cost is $25. Five copies of the Sunday Forum in which the announcement appears are included in the fee. Copies of the newspaper must be picked up at the main Forum office in downtown Fargo within five days.

To have the newspapers mailed, please make prior arrangements with the front counter staff at (701) 241-5486. There will be an additional charge to have the newspapers mailed ($5 for the Celebrations section only; $10 for the entire Sunday paper, minus inserts). A completed form and photo must be received before the baby is 1 year old. The deadline for receiving announcements is noon Tuesday.

Although we make every effort to publish announcements on the Sunday specified, due to space constraints some announcements will be held and published the following Sunday. Photos can be color or black and white. If you'd like your photo returned, enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Photos are held at The Forum for 30 days and then discarded.

The Forum reserves the right to control editorial content on all announcements in the Celebrations section. Information submitted will be edited to fit The Forum style guidelines.
