A VERY SPECIAL Wedding Anniversary
This week Abe and Frances Bobbitt celebrated their 64th Wedding Anniversary by joining us for lunch, fireside, in the Tavern. They had a relaxing and delicious meal, and were having such a grand time that their server, Angie, told me about what was going on, and so I went in to take their photo, and to talk with them.
I learned that they had been married in 1945 while Abe was home on leave from the military. He was serving on Adak Island in the Aleutian Chain, Alaska. That is nearly as far away from Lynn, Massachusetts as one could get, but obviously his mission -- to marry Frances -- was an important and worthwhile one, because their marriage has lasted all of these years. They have five children and seem very proud of each one of them.
They currently reside in Swampscott, Massachusetts, and love to come to the Hawthorne Hotel, and in fact they have stayed here, in celebration of other anniversaries, in the past.
I hope you enjoy this snapshot of life at the Hawthorne Hotel, and I hope to see you here.
