Leadership and Service

I do! I do!

As hundreds of choir alums gathered on the PLU campus for the 75th anniversary reunion of the Choir of the West, two Choir of the West alums made their way up the stairs to Tower Chapel to celebrate an anniversary of their own. On the Saturday morning of Homecoming 2001, Leroy Spitzer '52 and Connie Spitzer (Aune) '51, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary by renewing their wedding vows. On a December day in 1950, following chapel services, Leroy proposed to Connie outside the laundry room of Old Main (Harstad Hall). Connie said "yes" and the couple married on Aug. 22, 1951. Leroy and Connie thought about renewing their vows on a recent trip to Paris, France, but they realized that their vows should be renewed where it all began, at PLU. Campus Pastor Dennis Sepper performed the renewal ceremony and Campus Pastor Nancy Connor served as photographer.
