Hartmans celebrate 60th anniversary

Gary and Mary Hartman

Gary and Mary Hartman celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary last month on August 16 at the Oakland Hunt Club located on the Alpena/Alcona County line. Approximately 60 close friends and relatives were in attendance, and the attendees were treated with drinks and appetizers, a buffet-style dinner, trivia games with prizes, and a singalong.

Gary John Hartman and Mary Ellen Henry were united in marriage on July 11, 1959, in Alpena.

The couple has three children: Kevin Hartman (Sally) of East Granby, Conn.; Kathy Ferris (Del) of Alpena; and Karl Hartman of Kingsley, Mich. They also have several grandchildren and great-grandchildren, with three grandchildren in attendance at the anniversary celebration (Geoffrey, Genna, and Gordon Hartman, all of East Granby, Conn.).

Gary was a 1954 graduate of Alpena High School, and Mary was a 1959 graduate of Alpena Catholic Central High School. Both worked for many decades in the Alpena area: Gary as a draftsman/engineer predominantly at Huron Portland Cement and Eagle Engineering, and Mary as a cosmetologist at the Figurehead and J.C. Penney’s.

Family and friends wish congratulations to Gary and Mary.
