In September 1962, Gil Carlson, Racine, and Joyce Knoebel, Milwaukee, were vacationing over Labor Day weekend when they bumped into each other at Casey's in Egg Harbor. The following June they were married.

Gil and Joyce Carlson are now celebrating 50 years together. They are summer residents of Baileys Harbor with a winter home in Delafield.

They were married June 22, 1963, at St. Catherine's Church, Milwaukee, with a reception at the Sands Motel. They honeymooned with a two-week road trip around Lake Superior.

The Carlsons have four children: Kristine (Kurt) Kuelthau of Merton; Erik (Ann) Carlson of Chicago; Keith (Linda) Carlson of Madison; and Kraig (Stacey) Carlson of Burlington. They have six grandchildren: Alyssa and Rachel Kuelthau, Jasper and Lukas Carlson, and Gus and Griffin Carlson.

A 50th anniversary celebration was held June 2 at Thunder Bay in Pewaukee. They are planning an anniversary trip to Costa Rica in July.

The Carlsons enjoy boating, traveling, and spending time with their children and grandchildren at their cabin in Baileys Harbor.
