Melvin Lawrence, of New Salem, will celebrate his 90th birthday on Aug. 2. His family has requested a card shower in recognition of the occasion.
Melvin was born at home on his parent’s farm east of Udall. He married his sweetheart, Charlotte Anderson, 69 years ago on March 2, 1952, then off to the service. After serving the Army in the Korean war, they made their home in New Salem and continued to farm. Charlotte and Melvin reside at home in New Salem, among the best friends and neighbors one could ever wish for. They are frequently visited by their daughters Diana Kelly, of Geuda Springs, and Carol Torrence (Chuck), of Topeka, their great-grandson Kegan Kelly and grandsons, Logan Kelly, of Geuda Springs, and Cody Kelly, of Great Bend.
