One of the lesser-known observances in September is National Women’s Friendship Day on Sept. 21.
Based on the greeting cards that define friendships and the song lyrics devoted to them, the message is clear. Friendships are something we can’t do without. Nor should we.
So next month’s Snapz feature will give you a chance to shine the spotlight on that special person you call “friend.”
Ladies and fellas, you’re all welcome to send a picture of you and your best friend for our You Gotta Have Friends feature.
We’ll publish a few of the ones we receive in our Sunday, Sept. 7, edition, and they’ll all be posted online. Remember, we accept snapshots only; no professional portraits.
• Email a large jpeg file to email@example.com or mail your picture to:

• Don’t forget to include the names and cities of residence for those in the picture. It’s also nice to know who submitted it.
THE DEADLINE IS SEPT. 3.
