Mark and Nancy Allison of Freeland will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on June 17.

The couple was married at First Lutheran Church in Richmond Beach in 1967. After raising their family in Bellevue, the couple moved to Whidbey Island where a cabin on the beach became their permanent home. They are active members at Useless Bay Golf and Country Club, but also spend time strolling along the shores of Mutiny Bay to watch the sunsets, a press release said.

The couple plans to spend their anniversary at Christopher’s on Whidbey in Coupeville with their two sons, brother, sisters, spouses and Nancy’s father, who will be turning 95 on the same day.
