Although the Memorial Hall was and still is, well-known for being the perfect venue for special occasions, one celebration in particular was certainly “newsworthy”.

Eight Couples Mark Anniversary

“It was the celebration of a lifetime in Bezanson on Saturday, November 18, 1972 when eight couples celebrated their 25th wedding anniversaries.

To pay tribute to the occasion, the couples were guests of honor as local residents hosted a combined anniversary dance in the Bezanson Hall.

Anniversaries for each couple varied however the Johnston’s were the closest to the combined event – they marked their 25th year of wedded life on November 20th.

Festivities began at 9 p.m. with music supplied by the Country Pride. A midnight supper followed the dance.”
