Mr. and Mrs. Morris Anderson Sr. were married fifty years last Saturday, August 22nd, 1925, and the occasion was duly celebrated at the United Lutheran Church last Sunday.
A large crowd was in attendance to help the happy couple celebrate and Rev. M.K. Aaberg preached a very ? sermon. The choir rendered several splendid selections. After the service a wedding dinner was served in the church basement. After dinner several of the members of the congregation gave short talks and spent several hours visiting.
Mr. and Mrs. Ole J. Johnson were seated near the front of the church with the wedding couple having celebrated their golden anniversary last year. The church and the church basement were beautifully decorated for the occasion.
Mr. and Mrs. Anderson were both born in Norway and were United in marriage at Christiana, Norway, Aug. 22nd, 1875. They resided there about nine years after their marriage and then came to America, locating on a farm near Longwood (Clark Co., Wis.).
