GREENE -The sons of Raymond L. Anctil and Claire Roger-Anctil of Greene, took the opportunity to surprise their parents at their annual family summer gathering with a 50th wedding anniversary party.

The celebration was hosted by their son, Kerry, and his wife, Stephanie Nappi-Anctil, at their home in South Windham. The couple has four sons, Kerry, Mark, John and Steve, and four grandchildren.

Mr. Anctil and the former Claire Roger were married on July 13, 1957, at Saints Peter and Paul Church. Longtime Lewiston residents, they moved to a new home in Greene two years ago.
