Westphal, Mr./Mrs. Claude (25th - 26 June 1937)

Fifty friends and relatives of Mr. and Mrs. Claude Westphal, home of them guests at their marriage 25 years ago, arranged a happy surprise for the couple at their home on West 5th street Sunday evening in honor of their silver wedding.

Margaret Wegner and Claude Westphal were united in marriage June 26, 1912, at Globe Lutheran Church in the Town of Weston, Rev. H. Brandt performing the ceremony.

Rev. Bauman gave a short service after which the evening was spent in congratulations, visiting and playing games. Mr. and Mrs. Westphal were presented with a purse of silver and other sliver gifts by the guests and a beautiful frame silver wreath encircling verses, appropriate to the occasion, by their children, Evelyn, (Mrs. Walter Johnson), William and Marvin. The Westphal family circle was broken in 1933, when their son, Harry, was drowned.

At midnight a fine lunch, brought and prepared by the guests was served. A delicious 3-layer wedding cake, decorated with silver leaves, was baked and ornamented by Mrs. Robert Schlinkert and her daughter, Helen.
