Karin and Mel Kampmann to celebrate 50 years Nov. 28

November 25, 2015

From the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic and many travels in between, this vibrant couple will celebrate 50 years together Saturday, Nov. 28, and they're still going strong.

Korean War veteran Mel Kampmann met snazzy hairstylist Karin in San Francisco and nothing was ever the same again.

Having won an Emmy for creating "Action News" in Philadelphia, established a successful styling school and salon in northern Virginia and been original owners of the Dairy Queen in Dewey Beach, this couple has blazed their trail across the United States and now, for more than a decade, has called Rehoboth Beach home.

Helping them celebrate are their sons Erik with his wife Karen, and Scot, along with their granddaughters Melanie, Rebecca and Meghan.
