Brooks anniversary

Roy and Sandra (McGehee) Brooks, pictured at left, recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.

They knew each other when attending Nevada Union High School, but didn’t start dating until both were working in Nevada City in 1956. The couple were married July 13, 1958, at the United Methodist Church in Grass Valley.

Their children, Jeff, Eric and Julie, hosted a dinner celebration for 85 family and friends at the Holbrook Hotel in Grass Valley on July 12.

Roy retired from SPD Market after 43 years in the grocery business. Sandra was a full- time homemaker and a volunteer in the Nevada City School District.

The couple enjoy traveling to Europe, especially visiting relatives in Cornwall, England, and their yearly trip to Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. They also frequently visit Lake Tahoe and Reno.

They are involved in many community organizations and are Sacramento Kings season ticket holders.

They also enjoy attending their granddaughters’ basketball and softball games and choral events.

They have resided in Nevada City for 50 years. Sandra is a native of Nevada County.
