On Saturday, Dec. 28, Dale and Dolores (Hayes) Flanagan of Smithers were honored with a 65th wedding anniversary reception held at the Glen Ferris Inn.
They have three children, Debra (Tim) Shuler, Patricia (Mike) VanCulin and Jeff Flanagan.
They have six grandchildren, Scott (Brandi) Shuler, Kelly (Allen) Butcher, Chad (Erin) Flanagan, Laura Werts (Sam) and Andrew and Benjamin Flanagan.
They have six great-grandchildren, Timothy, Jaylynn, Isaac, Riley, Claire and Nash, and one great-great- grandchild, Gabriel.
Dale is retired from the United States Postal Service with 39 years of service.
For over 65 years, he and Dolores have been owners of Dale’s Photography Studio. They have worked side-by-side on many weddings, and various photography projects throughout the country.
They have enjoyed travelling across the United States and Europe for many years. On many occasions, they would take all six of their grandchildren on adventures throughout the USA.
Their son, Jeff, commissioned a portrait painting in honor of this momentous occasion.
They would also like to thank their grandsons, Andrew and Benjamin, and family members for assisting in photographing the entire celebration. To God be all glory.
