LEWISTON – Milton Lindholm of Waltham, Mass., and Jane Ault of Auburn and Wayne, were married at the Ault home in Wayne on Sept. 3, 1938.

On Sept. 7, they celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary at the Benjamin Mays Center at Bates College. More than 100 friends and family members attended the celebration, including their children, Martha Lentz of Topsham and Karl of Middlebury, Vt., Mrs. Lindholm’s six living siblings, five of their six grandchildren and their two great-grandchildren.

The couple met as students at Bates. After living in Massachusetts for a few years, they returned to Lewiston in 1945, when Mr. Lindholm accepted a position as director of admissions for men. He worked in the Admissions Office for 32 years, becoming in time the Dean of Admissions. The admissions building on Campus Avenue is named Lindholm House in honor of his many years of service to the college.

Mrs. Lindholm was, for many years, an editorial assistant in the alumni office. The couple has lived near the campus, on Nelke Place, and still enjoy welcoming visitors to their home.

Mr. Lindholm continues to enjoy bountiful friendships, in particular his ROMEO cohorts (Retired Old Men Eating Out). Mrs. Lindholm, still a voracious reader, maintains her lifelong love of literature while staying in touch with old and new friends.

The couple, residents of Lewiston for more than six decades, have happily served their community in many ways, particularly appreciating Lewiston’s cultural diversity and vitality.
