WOODHAVEN, Mich. (AP) — A Detroit-area couple will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary on Christmas Day.

Before that, however, Frederick and Betty Lou Walters have renewed their vows.

WDIV-TV ( ) says they did so Wednesday at Applewood Nursing Center in Woodhaven.

Local businesses have donated a number of items for the ceremony, including a wedding cake, flowers and a bridal veil.

The Walters got married in 1943 while he was on holiday leave during World War II. He flew home to Tarentum, Pa., and married Betty Lou, his high school sweetheart.

A justice of the peace officiated at the county courthouse.

Frederick Walters says his wife is "even more beautiful today than when" he first met her at a roller rink in Pennsylvania and says he's "just glad she's here."
