One truck load per Pollards celebrate 50th On April 3, 1965, Robert Pollard and Janice Presley were united in marriage before God and close loved ones, with Jon Ed Watson officiating the ceremony. What God put together, he truly kept together in this marriage. This was for both, the beginning of a wonderful 50 years of marriage. To celebrate in this wonderful event, approxi- mately 180 close loved ones, family and friends gathered on March 28, at the Rodney J. Evans conference building, overlooking beautiful Lake Jackson in Florala, to be a part of the renewing of Robert and Janice's wedding vows. The ceremony was officiated by Jack Day, their pastor (Bethel Assembly of God Church). Immediately following the ceremony, the lovely couple of 50 years, once again cut the cake and a catered dinner was hosted for all, along with a family video shown for all to enjoy. It was truly a special night, a night full of an abundance of joy, laughter, and much love. A night by all who at- tended, will remember for some time to come. To all those who played a part and came to be a part of this wonderful moment in time, Robert and Janice would like to send a most special "thank you" to all. There are no words that could ever begin to express the love and happiness they have felt from everyone taking time to share in this spe- cial event.
