Elaine and Lee Curtis of Pentwater celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Aug. 26, 2017. They were married in Charlotte, Mich. They celebrated over Pentwater’s Homecoming Weekend when their son David and granddaughter Sarina from Irving, Texas were in town to see them honored as Pentwater’s Citizens of the Year during the village’s sesquicentennial, noting that it was very special. Dinner at Scotty’s in Ludington included two from their wedding party, Elaine’ sister (maid of honor) Sharon Post (David Bieski) from Bradenton, Fla., and Harold Allmendingter, one of Lee’s groomsmen and brother-in-law from Fowlerville, Mich. as well as David and Sarina. Both Elaine and Lee are retired school teachers — she from Pentwater and he at O.J. DeJonge Jr. High in Ludington.
