Patrick and Patricia Alesse celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last week. The two Pats met while students at Eastern Washington College and married shortly after graduation. They moved to Blaine in 1964 to teach in the Blaine school district (Patricia retired in 1968, Patrick retired in 1995) and raised their two sons Keith and Burton. They started The C Shop in Birch Bay in 1971 as a summer job and have been making their famous candy ever since.
