Celebrate 50th Anniversary

Mr. and Mrs. Dean Truax Mr. and Mrs. Dean Truax Dean and Phyllis Truax were spending some at an RV park in Winter Haven, Fla., this past winter when they were suddenly surprised by all their family, singing "Happy Anniversary." It seems their family had been planning this for quite some time as it would be the only convenient time they could all get together to celebrate their parents' 50th wedding anniversary.

Dean and Phyllis were married June 6, 1959, at Ebenezer United Methodist Church. Flying or driving in were their two daughters: Deanna (Dale) Glading, Barrington, N.J., and Jill (Carl) Volgarino, Vero Beach, Fla., and their five grandchildren: Bethany Glading, Matthew Glading, Christopher Glading, Avery Volgarino and Arlen Volgarino.

The kids spent a delightful three days treating Mom and Dad, going to Sea World and other places. When Dean and Phyllis got back home to Pennsylvania they had another surprise. Phyllis' sister, Karen and husband Charlie Mehring treated them to five days of fun at Ocean City, Md. They wish to thank everyone for the cards and for participating in this celebration.
