Knoxville (WVLT) -- A Knoxville husband and wife are golden.
Much of the community turned out this afternoon to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of Reuben and Barbara Pelot.
The Pelot's have four children and 14 grand children.
According to Mrs. Pelot, she is thankful for everything God has given her.
"Mostly I just want to thank the good lord for 50 years together and such a wonderful partner to share the so many things we've been involved with in the community," she said. "It's a wonderful occasion, I just wish everyone could experience this."
The Pelot's have been volunteering in the community for decades.
Reuben is a general dentist and Barbara represents the second district on the Knoxville City Council.
