An open house celebration will be held on Sunday, April 11, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the McCarty Senior Center, Highway 54 in Wheatland, Mo. The event will be hosted by the couple's three children, Dee and David McQuown of Weaubleau, Mo., Wayne and Tenny Epperson of Stark City, Mo., and Tom and Sheri Epperson of Marshfield, Mo. The couple request no gifts, just memories of the past 50 years.
