Berwick community news Aug. 21

Published on August 24, 2014

The home of Glenn and Heather Lonergan, South Berwick, was the scene of a celebration on Aug. 9. The event was in honour of Adam and Michelle Lonergan, Anchorage, Alaska, who were married in Hawaii in April.

A lovely display of wedding pictures and a beautiful arrangement of food decorated the patio. With a bit a rain this was hastily moved inside, but the sun came back out and it was a beautiful afternoon. There were also Canadian and American flags tucked here and there to represent the union of Adam and Michelle. About 40 friends and relatives attended to wish the happy couple best wishes. It was pretty much like a family reunion with guests coming from afar.

Other family members celebrating special occasions were: Linda and Wayne Pineo, 44th anniversary on Aug. 8, Adam Lonergan 34th birthday on Aug. 10, Zach and Jillian (Lonergan) Crockatt, 1st anniversary, Aug. 11, Glenn and Heather Lonergan, 38th anniversary, Aug. 14, Dana Pineo, 40th birthday, Aug. 20, Dana and Kim Pineo, 15th anniversary, Aug. 21 and Bert and Bev Richardson, 28th anniversary, Aug. 30.
