Martha & George from Hendersonville, TN
Happy 61st Anniversary!

Martha & George

Martha and George Privett met when they were young at Trevecca College.  She thought he was the silliest thing she had ever met.  It was NOT love at first sight.  She went off to another school, and a few years later they hooked up again.  This time everything was different, and they fell in love and got married.  On June 24, 2016, they had been married for 61 years, so Elmcroft thought it would be a great idea for them to share their anniversary with their family and friends.  Elmcroft set up 2 tables for the "newlyweds" and their family.  There were candles, balloons, and lots of good food.  The couple's son, daughter-in-law, and 2 grandsons came to help celebrate the special day.  George had given his daughter-in-law some of his and Martha's favorite songs to learn to play on the keyboard years and years before.  He said that someday he would need her to play those songs for them.  Well, the day had come, so after lunch, George and Martha were serenaded by their daughter-in-law and their grandson, who played the chello.  They sat close to the music and held hands, while their Elmcroft friends sat in the background.  When asked what their secret to a happy marriage was, Martha piped up and said "Love, Honor, and Negotiate!".  It's worked for 61 years for them!
