Fred & Carol Lewers – Love at first blush
On Friday, Aug. 28th, Fred and Carol Lewers will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. One of the first things Fred noticed about his wife to be was she easily blushed, often in response to a compliment.
The couple was married in 1965, in Staten Island, N.Y., where they lived until 1989, when they moved to Palm Coast. In New York, Fred was a city firefighter for 20 years and Carol worked in the insurance industry and raised their children.
The Lewers' have two daughters, Susan Rogers (and her husband, Brian), and Nancy Cain (and her husband Billy), who blessed them with four grandsons; Michael and Matthew Esposito, and Brett and Ryan Cain, all raised in Palm Coast.
In Palm Coast, Fred worked as president of Palm West Home Realty, and was a charter member of the Palm Coast Little League. He was named Little League International volunteer of the year in 2011.
Carol, is an accomplished artist, and, in her husband's words; “a fantastic wife, extraordinary mother, and ultimate grandmother.”
Lions Recycling Program Halted
After recycling paper and aluminum cans, for more than 30 years in Palm Coast, the Lion's recycling program came to an abrupt halt last week when Publix, at Belle Terre and Palm Coast Parkway, requested the recycling containers be removed from the parking lot.
The Lions are seeking an alternate location to place the containers, that allows the public to support their work and charity projects by dropping off newspapers and cans.
The Lions are looking for a new location for their containers. If you are able to help, please call 445-5040, or 447-1417.
