Eagle River's Cliff and Dorothy Gilmore celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary on July 29, 2011.
The couple was married in Haggerman Valley, Idaho before immediately moving to Alaska, where they raided three boys, Steve, Gene, Joe and Randy who in turn gave them many wonderful grandchildren.
The couple celebrated their special day by crashing a birthday party barbecue at an undisclosed location. Dorothy said Cliff had promised her pizza for the occasion, but she settled for a grilled hot dog instead.
