50 Years

Mr. and Mrs. Leon Givens were joined in Holy Matrimony on May 25, 1963. Fifty years later, their family came together to celebrate with glee!!!
Yes, Mom and Pop Givens have been married for 50 years this year, and even though we wanted to have them a big "sha-bang" they simply didn't want that, so we spent 2 evenings together! Here are the details:
We had dinner at our house Friday night for Betty and Leon and their children, grandchildren, and great-grandson.

We had beautifully decorated tables, complete with fancy "chinet" dinnerware!

And names on the cups were a must!

Publix did a great job on the cake!

We decided we needed a "Groom's Cake" as well! Most of their marriage was spent as owners and operators of Bay Tire, or as Leon said, "Bay Tar!"

We had sparkling white grape juice chilled as well, and said a toast for the happy couple!

The menu: Golden Fried Chicken, Golden Mashed Potatoes, Golden Mac and Cheese, Golden Squash Casserole, Golden Corn on the Cob, and Golden Baked Rolls.

Here's everyone together!

The lovely couple and their cakes!

This is the whole clan, established 1963!

They are blessed enough to have 4 generations together for this occasion!

The next night, we took them out for a casual meal on the Causeway!

Good times and fun were had by all!!!
To God be the Glory for all of their years together!
