Cel­e­brat­ing a mile­stone

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Re­tired Dou­glas farm­ers Max and Lois Penny have cel­e­brated their 65th wed­ding an­niver­sary with friends at Horsham Sports and Com­mu­nity Club.

Min­is­ter Mervyn Fletcher mar­ried the Pen­nys on August 16, 1952 at Horsham Methodist Church. Max, 90, was born at Dou­glas and Lois, 86, in Horsham. The cou­ple’s son Peter still farms the orig­i­nal hold­ing at Dou­glas. They also have a daugh­ter, Dianne.

Lois jok­ingly told The Weekly Ad­ver­tiser that she ‘kept’ Max around be­cause she ‘couldn’t get a bet­ter of­fer’. Max said his wife was ‘just about ev­ery­thing’ to him. “We work as a team,” he said.
