Fifty Plus Anniversary Luncheon in Longview

It was a day to celebrate and honor some East Texans who have endured the test of time in a life of love and commitment. In Longview, the tenth annual 50 Plus Anniversary Luncheon was held at the United Methodist Church. The congregation has 66 couples who have been married for 50 years or more-- 12 who have been married more than 60 years. The event began as a way for the older couples to have fellowship, and evolved into a celebration of how marriage can last. The longest marriage at the church? James and Jennie Lou Henderson, married 68 years.
