Like many snowbirds escaping the ravages of a northern winter, we often roost in the Rio Grande Valley (RVG).
The following information appeared in the August 26 (2013) edition of the paper:
“Because e-mail is a great opportunity to stay in touch, the Valley Morning Star has put together this free newsletter for you with some of the latest information about the Rio Grande Valley.
“As you start your autumn journey back to the Valley and our welcoming sunshine, we know you’ll want to know what’s going on here.
“So once a month or so, we’ll send you these e-mails and hope you’ll enjoy reading about Harlingen, San Benito, South Padre Island, and our other surrounding cities. How are the crops doing? What new businesses have opened up? Are there any new restaurants? How about special deals or savings? And as always, we’ll tell you about the Valley’s interesting people and events.
“Don’t worry. We won’t “spam” you. After this email, you should be getting one in late September, one in January, and another in February.
“Let us know what you want to read about, too. Just send us an e-mail at WT@ValleyStar.com.
“Also, if you have friends or family back home who might be interested in keeping up with the Valley while you’re down here, we’d love to include them on our e-mail list.
“You can send their e-mail address to us, again, at WT@ValleyStar.com.
“We also encourage you and your family and friends to enter the WT contest for a chance to win a new Kindle Fire. It’s easy to enter. Just click the contest promotion spot on this newsletter, and complete and submit the form. Make sure you include who referred you to enter the contest. One lucky winner will be randomly chosen.
“The Valley Morning Star is excited that you’re coming back to visit us, so get ready to enjoy our South Texas hospitality.
“Have a safe trip!
“Lilia Castillo Jones
