Mayor Gary Christenson recently congratulated Carmella and Bill Nelson on 70 years of marriage at a family celebration at Exchange Street Bistro. Married in 1952, they raised their 12 children in the Linden Family Development until 1967 when they purchased their home on Mountain Avenue. They resided there for the next 55 years before relocating to Forestdale Park. Carmella and Bill are extremely proud of their 12 children, 17 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren and truly enjoy spending time with them and good friends. Mayor Christenson surprised them with a citation on behalf of the City in recognition of their milestone anniversary.
