Thousands celebrate Casino's 150th birthday
FOR Keith Staff, meeting his blushing new bride Jan has given him a reason to go places he's never been before.
"I moved to Evans Head two years ago to retire and because I didn't know the area I was reluctant to venture past Ballina," the 66year-old said.
On Saturday, Keith and Jan headed out to Casino to help the locals celebrate the town's 150th birthday.
"Jan gives me a reason to get out of the house and see new places. I want to show her around," he said.
"Casino is beautiful, we couldn't have picked a better day."
Keith and Jan met through the Internet and were married in November last year.
"We were emailing each other and talking on the phone for four months before I jumped on a plane to Mildura to meet her," he said.
"She sold up everything and came back to Evans Head with me.
"We're madly in love."
