Hosting the celebration were daughters Cindy Barry Ellis and Cathy Barry. In attendance were sons Donald, Dennis and Darin Barry; all nine of the Barry grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. Approximately 90 family members and friends enjoyed a buffet lunch provided by Family Affair Caterers.

Mr. and Mrs. Barry are both retired. Mr. Barry taught for 38 years at Nevada Union High School. Mrs. Barry worked at Nevada Union for 13 years then at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital for 23 years.

An anniversary trip is planned later as a gift from family and friends.
