Chuck and Carol Nelson of Salem celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary traveling through Arkansas visiting their daughter Connie and family and friends.
The Nelsons were married in Chicago, Ill., on July 9, 1955, when Chuck returned from overseas duty. He worked in several states and settled in Mountain Home in 1958. They owned and operated several businesses in Mountain Home and Batesville. In 1972 they purchased their "piece of God's country" in Salem and have enjoyed living in Salem ever since.
"The 50 years of marriage went too fast, so we'll try for another 50 years," the couple said.
