Gazette jazz columnist Fritz Peerenboom and his wife Pat celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on June 15.The couple enjoyed dinner with family at La Scala Restaurant and shared a celebration in honor of this event the following day with friends at The Buckeye Hall of Fame Cafe."The only glitch in the whole two days," said Fritz, "was the fact that we were seeing so many people , many of whom we hadn't seen for a lot of years , that there just wasn't enough time to really hang out with any of them."Fritz and Pat first met in 1954 in a small Clintonville confectionary located on Erie Road where she was working while a student at Columbus Business School.The day he decided to ask her out he recalled looking "crappy" when he stopped by because he was in the process of moving into an apartment.He later called and invited her to a movie, but Pat's boss, who knew Fritz and his two brothers, told her, "You can go out with his older brother and you can go out with his younger brother, but don't go out with him."That made it all the more intriguing, so she accepted his invitation.
