Derwin and Evelyn Helton, of Morristown, will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary Thursday, July 18.
They recently celebrated the occasion with a trip to Mackinaw Island and have several other outings planned. One of Evelyn’s favorite gifts was attending the Derek Hough Dance Tour in Knoxville.
Derwin retired from Morristown Parks and Recreation Department, but is still covering sporting events for the Citizen Tribune, which he has done for more than 50 years. Evelyn is a former teacher at Tabernacle Daycare.
The couple has two sons, Maj. David (Becky) Helton, who recently retired from the Air Force, and Douglas Helton.
They also have two grandchildren, Riley, who just graduated from Collierville High School, and Desmond, who attends Lincoln Heights Elementary School.
