HANLEY — They met at a dance at the Hanley Opera House, and after two years of courtship, the rest was history.
Family, friends and wellwishers filled the Hanley Centennial Hall last Saturday to celebrate a milestone anniversary for Roy and Lillian Tweet.
The Tweets were the guests of honour at a come-and-go party, marking exactly 70 years since their marriage on Nov. 5, 1946.
The event attracted visitors from as far as the Turks and Caicos Islands, as well as guests from North Carolina and Florida, and many from Canada’s Western provinces.
The happy couple was in good spirits during the party, welcoming their guests with smiles and hugs.
“It’s pretty awesome to have so many family and friends,” said Lillian. “I didn’t think it would be that many.”
