Lawrence and Dorothy Burleigh of Corinna will be celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary in St. Petersburg, Fla., on Thursday, March 15.

The couple originally resided in Belfast and has since had residence in Newport for most of their lives. They are well-known participants in most of the area’s senior citizen clubs, Corinna American Legion and Sunshine Village club, and almost any church or local club suppers. They are especially well-received at their local restaurant hangouts, local cribbage game events, and local shopping venues.

They plan to return home to Maine after Memorial Day. Any well wishes or cards can be forwarded to: c/o Ronald K. Clark Jr., 116 Kaler Road, Belfast, ME 04915.
