Golden Wedding Anniversary

This is our Golden Wedding Day. Happy 50th Anniversary to us! We were married on June 22, 1957 in the First Congregational Church on Washington Street. The church building is now part of the new court building. It was 90 degrees and windy on our wedding day. The reception was in the church parlor, and it was very modest by today's standards. For our honeymoon, we took a road trip from Traverse City to Detroit by way of Ontario. We crossed the Straits of Mackinac on the ferry because the Bridge was not yet open to traffic, although it was almost finished.

Since we already celebrated this event in the best way in April with our kids on the Caribbean cruise, today was fairly low-key. Two beautiful 50th Anniversary cards came in the mail from the Hardys and the Washingtons - really lovely. We went out to dinner, and Dick gave me a GOLF CAR !! It is so exciting! When you drop in to see us, I'll gladly give you a tour of our property! It's a neat, neat gift, and I am a happy camper.
