Charlie and Glendon Morgan Belk were honored recently with a 50th wedding anniversary reception at New Prospect Cumberland Presbyterian Church by their daughters and sons-in-law: Darlene and Daniel Cowles, Stephanie and Jeff Bennett and Missy and Tommy Arrendale. The Belks were married at the church on Oct. 8, 1960. The high school sweethearts were married when Airman Belk came home on leave from the U.S. Air Force. They took a trip back to Alaska this summer since that was their first home. Mr. Belk is retired from Norfolk Southern Railway and Mrs. Belk is retired from Cleveland State Community College. They have eight grandchildren: Morgan Cowles, Allie Cowles, Grace Cowles, Krista Riad, Bryce Bennett, Zoe Bennett, Elly Arrendale and Thomas Arrendale.
