Sam and JoAnn Mancuso of Dunkirk renewed their wedding vows after 50 years of marriage on Saturday, Feb. 18 at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church. The Reverend Walter Werbicki officiated at the 5 p.m. Mass with music provided by the Adult Folk Choir under the direction of Dan Smith. Mrs. Mancuso was presented with a rose by her granddaughter Mia to the song “Bring Me A Rose.”

Sam and JoAnn’s beloved grandchildren and great grandchildren were all in attendance: Nicholas and Elizabeth Caccamise and children Parker, Amelia and Waylon of California, Joseph Caccamise and Megan Carroll of California, Max Caccamise and Kayla, Dylan and Mia Mancuso.

A slideshow, prepared by Megan, was enjoyed by all. The couple danced to the song “Through The Years” at the end of the party. The event photographer was Diane Andrasik.
