Civil honours for golden and diamond anniversary couples

 

 

 

 

 

 

The city of Toruń has honoured 12 married couples on the occasion of their 50th and 60th wedding anniversaries.

The couples received medals, certificates, flowers and gifts from the city, which were presented by mayor Michał Zaleski at a ceremony on February 1.

Mr Zaleski said to the couples: “I hope that today your memories of 50 or even 60 years ago, when you confessed your love and determination to be married for life, will come alive.

“Today, Toruń is looking towards you with the utmost respect. I wish you health and happiness in the coming years.”
