Haydons celebrating 50 years

Tom and Sarah (Prather) Haydon are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on Jan. 14, 2017.

They were married in New Castle First Baptist Church in New Castle, Ky., where the bride accidentally swatted the groom with her trail of orchids, thus starting the marriage off right.

Their family includes Beth and Mike Collins of Beavercreek and Amy and Mike Sizemore of Ft. Mitchell, Ky.; and four grandchildren.

The whole crew celebrated with a two-week family trip this summer, reflecting shared love of family and adventure.
