Kute Kids”… THIS “KUTE KID” IS… 4-year-old Rosalie DaPalma. She just celebrated her birthday in December. Her mom is Alisha DePalma from St Joseph, Michigan. Rosie’s Aunt Angela Miles shared this photo with the Tri-City Record readers out of love for her niece. Share a photo of your “Kute Kids” with your friends, neighbors, and relatives who read the Tri-City Record. Make sure you write your kids’ names on the back of the picture and include any other information about it you would like to see in the paper, including mom and dad, grandma and grandpa, and so on. Send the “original” photo to the Tri-City Record, P.O. Box 7, Watervliet, MI 49098 or email it with your information to record@tricityrecord.com. Pick up your photo after it appears in the paper or include a stamped, self-addressed envelope and we will mail it back to you. Where are your “Kute Kids”?
