On Dec. 26, 2009, Charlene and Lawrence Brassbridge celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary by renewing their wedding vows at the Frankfort Congregational Church, UCC, with the Rev. Tim Hall officiating. The renewal was attended by Charlene and Lawrence’s family and friends.

They were blessed to have Carolyn Blethen, matron of honor, Frances McFarland, organist, and Clarence Drew, usher, in attendance, as they did 50 years ago. After the service at the church, a limousine took the couple, their children, and their children’s spouses and partners to the Shrine Club in Belfast.

They were greeted on their arrival by family and friends. Their family prepared and served a sit-down dinner, and after dinner, games were played, skits performed and music provided for dancing. All enjoyed the celebration.
