Kitchens mark 60th anniversary

Jack and Betty Kitchen of Boonsboro recently celebrated 60 years of wedded bliss with a covered-dish picnic in their back yard.

The party was given by their children and their spouses and significant others. The Kitchens have three daughters, Jean Clopper, Barbara Ann Hallmark and Debbie Grimm, and two sons, Ronnie and Bobby Kitchen. The event was a well-received surprise, and enjoyed by all in attendance. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Kitchen.
