IRONS — This year marks the 70th wedding anniversary for Jim and Barbara Bolhouse. Recently their family came together to celebrate this accomplishment.

“There were 40 members of our family who came together to celebrate,” Barbara said. “It was a great tribute. Everyone of our kids, grandchildren and great-grandchildren came from places such as California, Texas. Colorado and North Carolina. It was a marvelous time.

“In the morning my kids cooked waffles at the community center in Irons and invited neighbors and friends. In the afternoon the family gathered at Sand Lake for lots of food, swimming, canoeing, paddle boarding and water skiing.

“I am happy to be married for 70 years and am hoping for more years. My husband and I have lots to be thankful for. The Lord has been good to us.”
