On April 29, Dave and Linda Burrier of Newcomerstown will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.

The former Linda Welch and her husband were married in the home of the bride's parents. The Rev. Eshelman of the Wolf-Salem Methodist Church performed the ceremony.

The couple attends Christ United Methodist Church in Newcomerstown. They are the parents of Kristi (Jeff) Layman, Jeff (Marianne) Burrier, and Ryan (Kristin) Burrier. Nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren complete the family.

Dave retired from GE in 2006, and Linda is a teacher at Keene Elementary. She will retire next month from the Riverview School District.

The family is celebrating the occasion with a family dinner at Dutch Valley Restaurant.
