Charles “Mike” and Sandra Ashby will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary at an open house reception to be held Dec. 6 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Palestine Church of Christ.
Family and Friends are invited to attend, but asked to omit gifts “as your attendance will be their blessing.”
The couple was married Dec, 10, 1965, by the Rev. Russell Smith at the Church of the Nazarene in Greenville.
The Ashbys said they have been blessed with three children, Todd, Russell and Melanie (Stump). In addition, they are the grandparents to numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and have enjoyed following the sports activities of their loved ones.
The Ashbys have both retired from Corning Glass and continue to live their married lives through parenting, giving, laughing and loving.
