POLAND – Raymond and Marjorie Coleman of Poland recently observed their 65th wedding anniversary at the AMVETS Hall in New Gloucester. The event was planned by children of the couple, Win and Carol Coleman, Deannie and Wes Rogers, and Brenda Coleman.

Balloons, family pictures and candles decorated the hall for the event. The couple received many cards and gifts. Win Coleman was the toastmaster. One of the highlights of the day was the arrival of their grandson, who had just come from Iraq a short time before the party.

About 125 people attended from Maine and Connecticut.

Their children are Winfield and Carol Coleman, Geraldine and Wes Rogers, and Brenda Coleman, (husband, Gerald Coleman, deceased.)
