JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Gene and Carolyn Fouts returned to the Newtown Park Community Clubhouse – the site of their wedding reception – to mark their 60th wedding anniversary with family and friends Aug. 16.

On Aug. 17, 1954, the two wed at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Roswell, where Gene served as deacon for 58 years and church clerk for 48 years and Carolyn was a pianist and organist for 66 years.

Gene said that their greatest accomplishment was raising their three children.

"[We saw] that they had a good education and succeeded in school and after school," he said.

All the Fouts' children pursued careers in education: Gary Fouts, a technical college administrator in Tennessee; Carol Pizza, a Lassiter High School assistant principal; and Stan Fouts, who was an assistant principal at two area high schools before he died of cancer in 2011.

The Fouts' children, family and friends displayed photos of the original ceremony and the clubhouse in 1954 as well as original wedding gifts Carolyn had saved for six decades.
