Williams Lake couple celebrates 60th anniversary with an open house

The year was 1957(8) — a longtime ago anyway - when Orist and Elsie Sharun were wed and now celebrate 60 years of marriage.

The year was 1957(8) — a longtime ago anyway.

Orist and Elsie Sharun arrived in Williams Lake with a small troop of boys to make residence and belong to a community.

It worked! They are still here today and preparing to celebrate 60 years of marriage. Yes, 60 years.

So come one, come all to listen to the stories, to tell your stories, to make up some stories and to take these memories with you at the end of the day.

Yes, this celebration and fun time will be held at the Seniors Centre (not the youth centre); these two have earned their place at the Senior’s Centre at 176 North Fourth Ave. in Williams Lake.

If you do not know where it is, now is the time to find out as you will need to be there Monday, July 23 from 2 to 5 p.m.

Admission is free. Optional is one of the following: a good story; a good song; a good dance; or a donation to the local food bank.

Come early as seating space may be limited.
