Cecils celebrating 50th wedding anniversary
James and Cherie Cecil of Fairfield will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary during “a 50th Wedding Anniversary Event” hosted by their children from 5-8 p.m. Sunday at Fairfield Foursquare Church.
The event will include a meal served from 5-6 p.m., music from the past 50 years, visits with friends and family and a special ceremony at 6 p.m.
Because the couple is planning to take a sabbatical, their family would appreciate gifts cards, cash donations, hotel passes and other gifts that would help make that sabbatical worry-free of expenses.
James Cecil and Cherie Barnum were married July 20, 1963, in California.
They have five children: Stephanie Holderbaum of Fairfield; Steve Cecil and wife Kim of Madison, Wis.; Samantha Campbell and husband Robert of Fairfield; Scott Cecil and wife Beth of Fairfield; and Seth Cecil and fiancee Skylar of Fairfield. The couple also has 17 grandchildren, and they are expecting two great-grandchildren.
Mr. Cecil is pastor of Fairfield Foursquare Church, and Mrs. Cecil is director of Agapeland Preschool and Childcare Center.
