Share your reunion photos with us

Now that so many of our friends and loved ones have been vaccinated against the spread of the coronavirus, family reunions and lots of hugs are going around.

Snap a few photos of those happy occasions and share these special moments with us for publication in the Livingston-Tangipahoa Advocate and our online publications. 

We've been reporting about canceled activities for a year and it would be nice to spread the good news as families return to some sense of normalcy, while it still may be a socially distanced one.

You can email your photos to Include names of people in the photo, from left, and a description of the interaction in the photo. 

And, if you have story ideas or information about an upcoming event, email us so we can share with our readers.
