Come Friday, April 13, it will be 50 years to the day since Carol and Charles Peterson tied the knot.

It was also a Friday in 1962 when Charles was married to the former Carol Jones by Judge John Malloy in Washington, DC.  After completing Charles’ assignment with the U.S. Army in Fort Belvoir, Va., the couple returned to Snoqualmie in 1963, where they still live.

Now, friends, associates and classmates of the couple are invited to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with a reception, 4:30 to 7 p.m. Friday, April 13, in council chambers at Snoqualmie City Hall, River St.

Charles is a lifelong resident of Snoqualmie and is the city’s longest serving public official.  Currently a member of the city council, Charles was mayor from 1974 to 1982. Carol Peterson is a published author, former administrator, foundation manager, and was a legislative assistant to Congressman Don Bonker during the 1970s.
