50th Anniversary

My parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on July 23. Lois was home for the occasion, and we (Sydonyia, Lois, and I) planned a reception for them. It was held at their church, Emmanuel Baptist (thanks to Sharon and all those from the church who helped!!), and there were around 200 people who attended the drop-in. The best man, maid of honour, and flower girl were all there, as was the soloist, Terry Fraser, who sang the songs from the wedding program, 50 years later. It was a blessing to see so many family and friends out to wish Mom & Dad well and celebrate with them.

I've set up a page here on the blog as a record of the event and a means to celebrate the occasion, for those who could not make it out in July. The tribute video is there (it's about 14 minutes long) and pictures from the celebration, along with an opportunity for you to leave greetings for Mom & Dad in the comments section. Enjoy!
