Bonnie Donovan met her husband-to-be Larry Donovan on the day he got out of the Marines after the Korean War.  “I never got to see him in uniform,” she said. The couple were married at St. Joseph Chapel in Carpinteria in 1954 and are celebrating 65 years of marriage on Thursday, June 20. They still live in the house Larry built on El Carro Lane with timbers he salvaged from a restaurant that stood on the site of the present-day Fosters Freeze on Carpinteria Avenue.
