Long Time Donors Celebrate 70th Wedding Anniversary!

Long Time Donors Celebrate 70th Wedding Anniversary!

January 01, 2021

There are countless milestones celebrated throughout our lives, but not many of us have the pleasure of reaching a milestone as big as a 70th wedding anniversary – however, Burnaby residents, Roy and Carol Brainerd do.  

The two met at a mutual acquaintance’s wedding and just so happened to be the only two singles there. “Later that night when the young people went out after the wedding, we went along,” Roy explains. Since then the two have been inseparable. 

The Brainerd’s are passionate about the community Roy grew up in, and hold their community hospital close to their hearts. The couple began supporting Burnaby Hospital in 1989 and have been monthly donors for over a decade. On January 26th, the couple will be celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary from the comfort of their home.

Congratulations Roy and Carol! We wish you many more years of happiness and health!
