Sparks’ 40th

Tim and Kathy Sparks of Brown County celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary May 1, 2016, with friends at Brown County Presbyterian Fellowship.

A surprise party was arranged with the church ladies; a pitch-in lunch followed Sunday services. It included a themed cake with an airplane and horses to commemorate the couple’s life vocation.

Last December, the couple visited Machu Picchu in Cusco, Peru.

They met at Purdue University. Both graduated in 1976, the same week they were married.
