The first time Charlie Klink met his future wife, he bought her a balloon at a church festival.
"It probably cost about a nickel then," Charlie said.
A friend introduced the two while they were walking around the festival, but that balloon must have sealed the deal.
Charlie and his wife, Ginny, will celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary on Sept. 8.
The Klinks were married in 1943.
"But I'll tell you what, it's gone by in a hurry," Charlie said.
At the time of the wedding, Charlie was 22 and Ginny was 20, he said.
