Jose and Carlos Smitz with Mary at their 50th wedding anniversary celebration

Long-time Holt residents Carlos and Jose Smitz recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary by renewing their wedding vows at a celebration with family and friends.

Carlos and Jose migrated from their native Belgium settling in Canberra June 1961. They were among the original Holt residents moving to their new home in 1971, where they raised their family and still live.

"It is obvious to us all that Carlos and Jose have a great love for each other and being at the 50th was a very special occasion," commented Mary.
