Longboat Key residents Bill and Judy Carman recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. They were married July 27, 1962, in Ann Arbor, Mich., and honeymooned on Mackinaw Island, Mich. To celebrate 50 years of marriage, the couple revisited the island in June and enjoyed the annual Lilac Festival.
The Carman’s also celebrated locally in July with a dinner hosted by their three sons Matthew, Christopher and Jeffery and attended by close friends.
The couple has lived on Longboat for 43 years and was formerly in business at Carman’s shoes and Handbags on St. Armands for 46 years. They retired two years ago.
