June 26, a 72nd wedding anniversary party for Art and Jane Petersen was held at Munson Bridge Winery, Withee. The couple’s grandchildren hosted the party for nearly 100 people. Twenty-five relatives from states as far away as Georgia came to wish the couple all the best. Art and Jane also had their children Keven, Allan and Margie with them to ring in this special day.
This local couple, Art, age 97 and Jane, age 91 continue to have a busy social life and can be seen at many local events such as ribbon cuttings, dances, plays, card games and other fun activities. They are also active in their church, working with Thrivent, quilting or helping where needed. Their devotion to each other and their community keep them chugging along rarely missing anything happening in their home of Owen-Withee.
