      Leonard and Irene Corbiere of West Bay were married 50 years ago June 8, 1936 at the R.C. church in Sheguiandah. A full afternoon's activities were held Saturday to commemorate the occasion, including the renewal of their vows at West Bay R.C. church, a reception at Lakeview School and a dance later at the Little Current Legion. The couple exchanged rings, and Father Mike Murray came up from Ottawa to officiate at the ceremony. Eleven of their 13 children attended the festivities as well as many of their 32 grand-children and all of their great-grandchildren. (The youngest one at the ceremony was 2 1/2 weeks old). Irene noted that they had had both good times and some hard times too, but that they had never been hungry. Leonard said that he had quit school to start work at the age of eight. Over the years, he farmed, began to saw wood, built his own mill and his own home in which he and Irene and their youngest son still live. Retired now, Leonard still has a portable saw mill in use, again of his own design and construction. As one well-wisher noted, "Leonard has had a life-long love affair with wood." The couple, besides local best wishes, received congratulatory plaques and messages from Prime Minister Mulroney, Premier Peterson, Governor-General Jeanne Sauve, MPP John Lane and MP Maurice Foster.
