Chuck and Elaine Carter will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on December 30, 2012.

They were married in Peotone, Ill., on December 30, 1952, while Chuck was home on Christmas leave from Ellington AFB in Texas. After 29 years in the Air Force, they retired in Arkansas, living first in Quitman (1977) and later moving to Conway (1985).

They have two children, Jenny Dias of Conway and Chuck Jr. of Sunrise, Fla., five grandchildren (Arkansas, California, Florida and New York), and two great-grandchildren.

In celebration, friends and family are invited to attend a reception from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, December 30, in the Grace United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall.

The couple requests no gifts. They want only to enjoy your company.
