Thomas and Mary Beth (Betsy) Metzger, nee Thompson, celebrated their 50th anniversary on June 29, 2013. They met as cast members for their Senior Play at BTHS in May, 1959, and married four years later after college graduation. They were married by Msgr. Ell at Blessed Sacrament Church on June 29, 1963.

Their two children, Mark (Judy) and Angie have provided them with four grandchildren: Douglas (Jossie) in Kentucky, Katie in Swansea, and Ryan and Nicholas in Aurora, IL.

The celebration began with a Mediterranean Cruise last fall, and will continue through a dinner for family and friends in July, to be hosted by family.
