Mr. and Mrs. Bill Burger

Bill and Marci Burger, of La Porte, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary from Aug. 9 to 16 at Estes Park, Colorado with their children and grandchildren. The beautiful mountain setting provided for hiking in Rocky Mountian National Park, kayaking, horseback riding and white-water rafting.

They have three daughters, Michele Vecseri, Houston, Texas; Tonia McQuade, Seattle, Washington; and Gwen Dishman, Glen Ellyn, Illinois; and 12 grandchildren.

The Burgers were married on July 31, 1965 at St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Arlington Heights, Illinois. They are members of Liberty Bible Church in Chesterton and sing in the Worship Choir. Marci also helps manage the church library. Bill, a retired La Porte business owner, is the Michiana Area Coordinator for Operation Christmas Child, co-president of the La Porte Community Concert Association and the instructor for Silver Sneakers and Silver Splash at the La Porte YMCA.
