A luncheon was held July 2 in the fellowship hall at Shepherd of the Pines Lutheran Church to celebrate Frank and Susan Rysan's 50th wedding anniversary.
The couple married in Long Beach, Calif., July 1, 1955.
They moved to Payson in September 1994.
The couple's children planned the party from Southern California and were assisted by church friends, Cucina Paradiso and Bashas' bakery.
Darin and Jackie Rysan, Deena and Michael Janney and five grandchildren hosted the gathering.
