Signal Multimedia is inviting the public to contribute personalized stories, birth announcements, engagement announcements, anniversary stories and photos depicting families in the Santa Clarita Valley for the weekly Our Community section. The rewards and challenges of raising a family can be inspiring, fun or serve as a real life lesson for other readers. Story areas might cover topics such as coping as a single parent, the struggle of a two-working-parents family, military parents, coping with special needs children, serving as an adoptive or foster parent, operating blended families, multiple births or just plain addressing the challenges and needs of families today. A contributor might describe creative ways of raising children, making ends meet, entertaining or educating children – or tell the tale of families coming together to support each other in times in need. Send your stories and/or announcements to: email@example.com or call 661-287-5593 for more information.
