Helen and Harold Sands of Prescott celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary June 14, 2007.
They met 61 years ago on a blind date. Helen left South Dakota with her sister to attend a beautician school in L.A. Harold had just returned from WWII. They spent everyday together for one year, often dining and dancing at The Brown Derby, before they were married. They retired 16 years ago and moved to Prescott. Joining them in celebration at Windmill Farms in Chino Valley were daughter Linda (Rolf), son Ron (Tracey) and sister Mrs. James Keogh (Millie) all from Prescott. Joining them from afar in celebration were son Larry (Dominique) from Napa, California and son Marty (Toni) from Lahaina Maui, along with their 10 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
