Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth May of Princeton will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with an open house from 2 to 4 p.m. Sept. 15 at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, Dover Road, Princeton. The event will be hosted by their children.

Kenneth May and the former Nancy Robins of Fremont, Mich., were married Sept. 15, 1963, in the Third Presbyterian Church in Rockford. They are the parents of three children, Kevin (Angie) of Danvers, Michael of Princeton and Laura (Rick) Allen of Princeton. They also have five grandchildren, Adam (Michelle) May of Boise, Idaho, Ashley May of Palatine, Johnathon and Nathan Allen of Princeton, and Grace May of Princeton; and one great-grandson, Everett.

Ken farmed 51 years and was a seed dealer for 30-plus years. Nancy was a registered nurse for In-Home Care for 26 years. They are both retired.

All family and friends are invited to attend the open house. They request that gifts be omitted.
