50th wedding anniversaries!

The time has come to congratulate the members of the MCHS Class of 1960 who have reached a major milestone in their lives:  their 50th wedding anniversaries.  This page was lauched in 2014 with just one 50th anniversary photograph, but the page is growing.  Please send a photo of YOUR 50th anniversary to Wayne Overbeck.

Roger and Delphia Anderson celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in March, 2018 by returning to Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Oklahoma--the place where they met.  Roger was stationed there and Delphia was a civilian employee on the base.   Roger has been a licensed pilot ever since his days as a student at Mira Costa.  His service in the Vance AFB control tower and later at the FAA center in Oklahoma City led to a lifelong career as an air traffic controller.  As their 50th anniversary approached,  he contacted the base public affairs office and they were given a v..i.p. tour of the base, including the new 21st century tower and radar facility.  The photo below shows them on the airfield to celebrate their golden anniversary.


Dave and Karen (Aabel) Vogl observed their 50th anniversary with an appearance on the Today show in New York in Febnruary, 2013.  This is one of the photos taken to mark that occasion. 

Four years later, Dave and Karen Vogl sat for this portrait and the one immediately below to observe their 54th anniversary in 2117. 

Don and Kathy Roland celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary at their home in Annapolis, Maryland on Feb. 1, 2014. They chose to delay any formal celebration of their anniversary until June when most of their children and grandchildren could join them in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Pictured on their Hilton Head 50th anniversary trip on June 27 are (left to right) Philip and Jenny (Roland) Wolfe with their daughters Charlotte (age 3) and Emma (age 5) from Georgetown, Delaware; Don and Kathy; and Richard and Aileen (Roland) Wall from Camarillo, California.  Below: here are Don and Kathy on Feb. 1, 2014--and on Feb. 1, 1964.

Mike (Roger) and Karen (Richards) Rambeau celebrated their 50th anniversary on June 6, 2014 in Napili, Maui, Hawaii (the 50th state).  At right is a photo of them on their wedding day 50 years earlier.

Here are Rich and Tally Saum in a portrait on their 49th anniversary.  They celebrated their 50th on August 24, 2013 with a Hawaiian cruise.

Jim and Sammie (Chapman) Baker, shown here in an earlier portrait, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on May 27, 2011.  Do they hold the record for the longest-enduring marriage of the Class of 1960?
