Bird-Haley to wed
Rebecca Bird of Holiday Island and Ben Haley of Ruston, La., plan to marry at 4 p.m. July 23 at Holiday Island Community Church where she is the pianist. The bride is a retired public school music teacher and the groom is a retired physician. They met in 1957 at Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, where he was the band drum major and she was a majorette. They became reacquainted in October 2010 at their fifty year reunion. Friends of the couple may accept this as an invitation to the wedding and the reception following at the church.
