Benetas residents celebrate

IT HAS been a busy few weeks at Benetas St Laurence Court in Eaglehawk with number of residents celebrating milestones. 

Hilda Tanaskovic, Doug Beer and Joyce Bettinelli celebrated their 90th birthdays, while Marj Mossop turned 103 and Nina Govan turned 99. 

Clarice and George Blandford celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary earlier in March. 

The pair were married on March 6, 1954, at St Paul's Cathedral in Bendigo. 

Mrs Blandford said the pair had moved around central Victoria, living in both Bendigo and Ballarat during their 60-year marriage. 

"I think it is marvellous," she said. 

"She is a good cook and I can mow the lawns," Mr Blandford said. 

Mrs Blandford said the secret to a long marriage was not to argue. 

"Don't have arguments and work out your problems," she said. 

Mrs Blandford said she loved everything about her husband while Mr Blandford said his wife was a good cook.
