September 19, 2011 - BROWNVILLE JUNCTION - By Cindy Herbest

Elwood McCleary and Hannah Dorothy Harris McCleary will be celebrating 65 years of marriage with their family. The couple, originally from N.B. Canada, met in the spring of 1946 and tied the knot a few months later on September 24th. They were married in Mcadam, N.B. and traveled by passenger train to Niagara Falls for their honeymoon.

Shortly thereafter, the newlyweds along with their 1 year old daughter, moved to Brownville Jct. Me., to pursue work for the Canadian Pacific Railway where they still reside today. Their family has grown with 5 children, 8 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. If you see the happy couple, be sure to congratulate them!
