Albert DiPietro and Karin Janson DiPietro of Shelburne will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on Saturday, Dec. 23. Karin and Al started dating while attending high school together in Farmington, Conn.
“Swedish meatballs and Italian spaghetti go well together,” one statement read in their class yearbook.
The two continued to date through their college years, and eventually married in 1967 at the First Church of Christ in Unionville, Conn. After living for some time in California and Pennsylvania, Al and Karin moved to Vermont in 1984. They have two daughters who live in the area with their spouses. They also have two wonderful grandchildren.
