McKelvey: 50th wedding anniversary

Terry and Sandy (Allen) McKelvey will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on July 30 at 5 p.m. at the Nelsonville VFW at an open house given by their children, daughters Becky (Louie) Smith of Nelsonville, Wendy (Bob) Cottrill of Logan and son Bob of Nelsonville.

They were married on Aug. 4, 1961 in St. Clairsville. They resided in Columbus until 1976 when they moved to their present residence in Hocking County.

Terry is a retired elevator mechanic. Sandy is a retired registered nurse.

They have six grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. They thank God for the many blessings he has bestowed on them throughout their lives. They are hoping to celebrate with a host of family and friends at the open house and request no gifts be given.
