Marriage milestone

Both 78, they are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary after marrying in 1955 at St Joseph�s in Albany when they were 18.

The Brennans, who have six children, 10 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, met as 16-year-olds.

�We met at a dance in Albany � she was the new girl in town and she could dance, so that was that,� Bob said.

For many years Bob worked with GJ Coles, so the family moved around the South-West from Albany to Perth to Bunbury and back.

Bob and Kay have lived at RAAFA�s Cambrai Village for 14 years after �getting in on the ground floor� when the village was built..

�Our children had a big celebration for our 50th wedding anniversary � it was a large affair, so we aren�t doing anything huge for our 60th,� Kay said.

�We�re going overseas for holidays in May to Singapore and Thailand, so that will be our celebration.�
