Former longtime Yampa residents Wendell and Lupie Riley celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with friends and family Aug. 14 at Fox Run park in Colorado Springs. The party was hosted by the couple’s four children and their spouses, and it was attended by seven of the Rileys’ nine grandchildren. The festivities included a catered lunch, music and two sheet cakes decorated with a copy of the couple’s original wedding photo. During their time in Yampa, Wendell was an electrical contractor who operated Rileys Electric. He later was employed as an electrical inspector for the city of Steamboat Springs. The couple moved out of state but returned to Colorado and live in Calhan.
