Mike and Charlene (Harlan) Herchick, of Macedonia, are celebrating 50 years of marriage this week.

The two are both 1966 graduates of Nordonia High School, life-long residents and business entrepeneurs, following Mike's service in the U.S. Navy.

The two were married May 20, 1967 at the United Methodist Church of Macedonia and retired earlier this year from Herchick's Tire Service on East Aurora Road in Macedonia after 46 years of business.

The two have a daughter, Angel Herchick Hohlakis, of Parma, and a granddaughter, Arianna.

The couple have always been involved in the community and active members of the Nordonia Hills Rotary. Mike is a founding member of the Nordonia Hills Chamber of Commerce and Charlene has always been involved in animal rescue and recycling for the betterment of our planet. They have built an animal habitat at their residence in accordance with state outlines and are now enjoying their retirement and being grandparents.

The couple plans to renew their vows at a later date.
