Harvey and Patricia Feltman, of Mount Pleasant Mills, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on June 28.
They were married in 1958 at Mount Zion Church in Millerstown.
Harvey Feltman is the son of the late Henry and Grace Feltman of Richfield. Now retired, he formerly worked in Harrisburg for the Taylor-Wharton division of Harrisburg Steel Corporation (Harsco). His wife, Patricia, is the daughter of the late Norman and Martha (Beers) Kerstetter, of Richfield. She was formerly employed as a seamstress at the Richfield Shirt Company.
Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Feltman
The couple has five children: Dale Feltman, of Kreamer, Deborah Neitz, of Freeburg, Vincent Feltman, of Kreamer, Roger Feltman, of Richfield, and Wendy Holderman, of Richfield. The children hosted the celebration at the Fremont Fire Hall in Mount Pleasant Mills, with help from the eight grandchildren: Valerie Feltman of Lancaster, Jason and Jesse Neitz, of Freeburg, Cary Feltman, of Kreamer, Levi and Paige Feltman, of Richfield, and Tanisha and Devin Holderman, of Richfield.
Retired U.S.A.F. Chaplain Colonel Stuart Lengel offered a prayer and shared stories. Cousins came from Rochester, N.Y., members of the Beers family from Lewistown, and Harold Kerstetter from Exton, who along with his wife, Nancy, was witness to the couple's wedding in 1958.
Visitors reminisced with the couple and each other while enjoying a buffet supper and plenty of ice cream and golden anniversary cake. The cake could also be considered a combination anniversary-birthday cake. That's because the couple was married on the groom's birthday.
