Sunday, August 25th

Steve & Jenny Loftis and Jack & Beth Wilson invite you to a drop-in honoring each couple’s 50th Anniversary on Sunday afternoon, August 25th, from 2-4pm in the CLC. Steve & Jenny were married August 17, 1969, in Summerton UM Church, Summerton, Clarendon County, SC. Jack & Beth were married September 14, 1969, at Midway Presbyterian Church, New Zion, Clarendon County, SC. Although Jenny and Beth grew up across the county from each other, they had to come to WFBC to get to know each other and become family with this church family. Come join the celebration of each couple’s 50th anniversary. No presents, just your presence is your gift to them.
