Graingers celebrate 60 years

Dennis and Edie Grainger of Cleve celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with a surprise lunch on Thursday, November 2.

Family traveled from as far as Broken Hill, Launceston and Perth for the lunchtime celebration.

They have children in Mount Isa, The Kimberley, Perth, Tasmania and Cleve, with one deceased, in addition to lots of grandchildren and some great-grandchildren.

Mr and Mrs Grainger received congratulatory letters from Queen Elizabeth, Malcolm Turnbull and other dignitaries to mark the occasion. 

The Graingers have owned a number of businesses across Eastern Eyre and the West Coast.

Mr Grainger said he was the “happiest and most content ten pound Pom to come here”.
