Dennis and Paula (Ball) were married at the First Church of the Nazarene in Yakima, Washington on August 23, 1969. They remained in Yakima where they raised their two children, Theron and Tricia. Dennis retired from Boise Cascade. Paula retired from the State of Washington, with the most time spent in DVR. Since retiring they have enjoyed traveling, camping, hiking and spending time with family. Family and friends will help them celebrate this milestone with a dinner at the Harmon Center in Yakima. They also have an anniversary trip planned - taking a cruise along the east coast and docking in Nova Scotia.
