Lintons to mark 50th anniversary with food and friends

BRATTLEBORO — Barbara and David Linton invite friends “to come through to share their love with them” on their 50th wedding anniversary, their family writes.

The family-friendly open house with “music, food, and love” takes place Saturday, June 24 from 2 to 5 p.m. at The Root Social Justice Center, 28 Williams St., a space that is physically accessible.

David Linton, a lifelong runner, worked as a bookbinder for over 20 years at the Book Press and retired on its closing in 2000.

Barbara Linton, a retired registered nurse in private practice, has been a social justice advocate.

The Lintons, married June 24, 1973, came to Brattleboro in 1977 and left in the early 2000s to care for family. They returned to town in 2018.

They will mark “50 years of love, sacrifice, and purpose,” their daughter, Shela Linton, says. “We celebrate this couple with joy.”
