The children of Duane and Catherine (Reynolds) Naccarato happily announce their parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. The couple was married on August 22, 1968 in Dodge City, Kansas. In celebration of this blessed anniversary, Duane and Catherine joined with their four children and spouses and most of their 23 grandchildren for a reunion in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, where they were greeted by a live bear upon arrival. The entire family bunked together in a large cabin and toured the area. A celebration was held at the Tour of Italy Restaurant in downtown Gatlinburg.
