May 31 will mark the 43rd wedding anniversary of Bryant residents Anna
Elizabeth and Joe Ogden. The couple met in 1969 at the Wesleyan Foundation
on the campus of the - then - Arkansas Agricultural and Mechanical College
in Monticello, where Ogden worked.
âIâd come in for a free meal on Sunday nights," Anna muses. âI didnât have
a car, and he offered to give me a ride back home.â
âTwo weeks after we met, I told her,âIâm going to marry you',â Ogden says.
âI told him, âthat sounds like a pretty good idea to me,ââ Anna laughs.
