Announcements are current news. So when they first appear, readers can
easily surmise the date or know approximately what it is. I don't
think that it would detract from the announcements to show a date.

On the other hand from a strictly archive perspective, the
announcement page shows the date prominently.

I agree with you that it would be helpful to have the date on the
announcement page itself. Occasionally I see webpages with no date and
have no way of determining the age of the content.
