Valley East Today is pleased to provide this space to
honour married couples who have been married for 50 or more years. We all
realize that the tradition of marriage is no longer the same as it once
was and it will likely take on a whole new look in the future. The number
of couples who experience the thrill of living together in a journey of
love for 50 or more years is expected to diminish drastically.
A man from North Bay, Tim Salidas, is trying to organize an event on
May 7, 2006 at the Memorial Gardens to bring together couples married for
50, 60 and 70 years or more. He is hoping that the event will attract up
to 4,000 people and will enter it into the Guinness Book of World Records
as the largest gathering of its kind.
While we don't expect to have 2,000 couples in this section, we would
like to invite readers to send us photos and a brief description of
couples from the area who have been married for 50 or more years.
You can bring the photos to our Valley East Today office which is
located in the Hanmer Valley Shopping Centre, or email the information to firstname.lastname@example.org
