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.
