A big bash for Ashland County couples who've been married at least fifty years was held during the noon hour Wednesday at Mozelle Hall at the fairgrounds. 188 couples, with a combined 10,700 years of marriage attended the luncheon. That included 56 couples married more than 60 years, and two married 71 years. So what does it take to stay married "until death do us part"? We asked the experts. Lloyd and Mildred Carpenter say they live, work, and vacation together, and "what one's doing the other's doing". The shortest-tenured couple, Bruce and Miriam Usher, whose golden anniversary was October 12th, were labeled "the newlyweds", and cut the wedding cake to share with the others. The first-of-its-kind party was hosted by the Ashland County Community Foundation and United Way of Ashland County. Sponsors covered the expenses.
