Whites celebrate golden anniversary on cruise
Happy memories of the wedding vows were revisited by Kilus White, Sr. and the former Betty Claytor as they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.
The couple sailed aboard The Carnival Valor on a seven-day cruise in November.
Thirty-two relatives and friends sailed along to the Caribbean. There was plenty to do and places onshore to have fun.
The Whites have been Palm Coast residents since 1997. They are the parents of two and the grandparents of a precocious grandchild.
