James and Sandra Zinkel of Bristol recently celebrated their golden wedding anniversary with a dinner party hosted by their extended family at Roma Lodge.
Jim and Sandy Gerber met in college through mutual friends and were married at St. Luke’s in Kenosha on Aug. 10, 1968.
Jim’s background in the lumber business and manufacturing was instrumental in his ability to start his own business, Camelot Enterprises, Bristol, a tool and fastener distributorship. Sandy joined Camelot as a co-owner/operator when she retired from civil service in 1994. They are members of Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church in Antioch, Ill.
They attribute the success of their lasting union to God, love of family and friends and a sense of humor.
