61 years ago in Mississippi, a USAF pilot cadet and Miss Greenville met at a dance and fell in love. After flying fighter jets in the Korean war, the Bilsons came to Ceres and together started Bilson's Sport Shop and The Dance Factory. They've enjoyed a life of family, friends and fun. Still in love, they celebrated their marriage May 12th with close friends and family, daughters Debbie Holtzclaw, Susan (Roger) Bent, sons Steve (Jeanne), Brad (Andrea) and many grandchildren.
