Servaty, Mr./Mrs. John (Gold - 26 JUN 1940)

Wednesday, June 26, 1940, Mr. and Mrs. J.J. Servaty were honored by over 60 friends and relatives who spent the day with them at their home on Lake Namakagon, in observance of their golden wedding anniversary.

At noon a wonderfully delicious dinner was served to all of the guests on tables set up on the lawn. The tables were beautifully decorated with yellow roses and yellow lilies. At each guest’s place was an appropriate place card and individual rose. Mr. and Mrs. Servaty each wore flowers, Mrs. Servaty having a corsage of yellow roses and Mr. Servaty a yellow rose boutonniere. Before the guests were seated for the dinner the honored couple’s four grandsons offered the blessing.

Harry Hinkman of Shreveport, La., acted as toastmaster and during the meal asked various guests to speak a few appropriate remarks for the occasion. The couple was presented with a large purse of money from their friends and many other fine and lovely gifts. Many sincere and beautiful letters of congratulations were read that were received from friends and relatives who were unable to attend on this celebrated occasion. Following the dinner the entire group joined in singing some old time favorite songs.

Throughout the remainder of the day the guests amused themselves by visiting with one another and some found amusement in bathing, boating and fishing.

Mr. and Mrs. John Servaty were united in marriage at River Falls on June 26, 1890, and then made their home at Neillsville (Clark Co., Wis.) where they resided for ten years before moving to Withee (Clark Co.) in 1902.
