Gayle and Bill Patton celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary with a reception at Blue’s Grove Baptist Church Fellowship Hall on Nov. 24, 2013.

The couple was married on Nov. 25, 1988, at Flat Rock Church of God in Mount Airy.

They surprised guests by receiving their many friends and family dressed in the wedding attire they wore for their vows in 1988.

The pastor who performed the wedding in 1988, Brother Deward Scott, and his wife, Louise, were special guests.

Hostesses for the occasion were Mrs. Jean Bullin, Mrs. Kathy Branch, Mrs. Barbara Freeman, and Mrs. Kelly Bullin.

Gayle and Bill Patton received many visits, cards, calls and great gifts.

The Patton’s thanks go to all who attended and those who congratulated them and wished them more blessed years together.
