Don and Mary Clute celebrate 50 years

Don and Mary Clute

Don and Mary Clute celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on June 12, and decided the golden sunrise over Lake Superior would be the perfect setting for their celebration.

The Clutes, lifelong Alpena residents, were joined by their family at Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park in the western Upper Peninsula for a week of laughs, adventure, and campfire stories about their wedding day (which seems like only yesterday).

Don and Mary (Sabourin) were married at St. Anne Catholic Church, with friends and family in attendance.

They have four children: Julie Brownell of Alpena, Donald (Jerry McCallister) of Knoxville, Tennessee, Amy (Jason) Banny of Alpena, and Beth (James) Fults of St. Johns. They’ve also been blessed with seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
