George and Marjorie Flack, Metamora, were named king and queen of the 56th annual Fulton County Fair Golden Wedding Party, Sunday afternoon, Aug. 31.

Both are veterans of World War II. George was a dental technician in the Navy, while Marjorie was a parachute rigger in the Women’s Reserve of the Marine Corps.

George served aboard the USS Climax (Auxiliary Minesweeper 161), where he was the “only medical man on board,” he said.

The USS Climax was an Admirable-class minesweeper built to clear minefields in offshore waters.

The couple met at the air base at Cherry Point, N.C., and got married on July 8, 1944, 10 months after they met.

The couple has two children, Carole (Rick) Brown, Mt. Clemens, Mich., and Beverly Lung, Winston-Salem, N.C. They have five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Fifty-nine couples were honored.
