On November 18, Chuck and Celeste O’Neil celebrated 50 years of marriage. Milford borough residents since 1982, they gathered with family to renew their vows at Barckley Park, reciting together Chuck’s poem “November.”

The last stanza reads:

November again Love

Leaves all down

The light we love easing in

And a sense the world’s ending

A sense we’re starting out as before

From weather to weather

For richer for poorer

Well-wishers waving

The two of us

Leaving the mainland

The weekend also included the Sondheim musical, “Company,” at the Milford Theater, and dinner at La Posada. In lieu of gifts, donations were made to the O’Neil Family Fund, Greater Pike Community Foundation.
