On July 13, Wilf and Ethel Ruecker celebrated their 70th anniversary with family and friends. Long-term residents of Faust, now residing in St. Albert, the anniversary couple were given a surprise “drive by” celebration in the parking lot of their complex. Family and friends from as far away as Saskatchewan attended to honour this significant accomplishment.

The congratulatory banner ensured that the carriers were six feet from one another, everyone wore handmade masks, and the group played songs, encouraging Wilf and Ethel to have a celebratory dance. The event was a great success providing lasting memories for all who attended. Facebook notification of the event resulted in even more congratulations.
