Rev. Randy and Dorraine Vines recently celebrated their 25th anniversary.
They were married Sept. 15, 1990 at Mount Carmel Baptist Church by the Rev. Jack Lambert.
Mrs. Vines is the former Dorraine Towe.
Their first date was in 1988. Randy is a native of Cherokee County, Alabama and has been employed by the city of Rome for 42 years. He is a minister of the Gospel. Dorraine is a Floyd County native and is a stay-at-home wife. The couple are members of Community Chapel Baptist Church.
In their spare time, Randy is a pen and ink artist and Dorraine enjoys playing bass guitar, piano and writing. They have enjoyed an Alaskan cruise, traveled out West and visited 22 states as well as vacationed in the Smokies.
They say the secret to their happy marriage is love for one another, commitment to God and each other, laughter, talking and serving the Lord.
