Ballina patient celebrates 70th Wedding Anniversary
Ballina District Hospital celebrated a milestone of a different kind yesterday when patient, James Keen, 90, and his wife Val, 86, celebrated their 70th Wedding Anniversary.

Jim and his wife have been long-time Ballina residents and still have friends and family in the area.

The couple met at a dance at Evans Head, where Jim was stationed with the Air Force.

“He was a good dancer. We got on like a house on fire”, said Val.

Jim and Val have five great-grandchildren, some of whom came up from Sydney to celebrate with them at the morning tea held in the hospital’s transitional care unit.
