Choir veteran George Stevens and his wife Dot celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary at Shirley Park Golf Club on Saturday October 4.  Guests included George's fellow top tenors and other close friends from the choir, as well as family and friends from elsewhere.

George and Dot cut the cake

The CMVC contingent sang a version of When I’m Sixty-four, especially adapted by choir chair Kimball Ormond.  The last three lines read:

You can knit a sweater sitting by the fire, while Thursday evenings I go to the choir.

Doing the garden, digging up weeds, who could ask for any more

I love that you need me and you still feed me after sixty years and more.

George serenaded Dot with If, the song he performed several decades ago when he auditioned for the tv show Opportunity Knocks.   “They gave all the signs of being as much in love as sixty years ago,” one guest said.
