Schmitz, Mr./Mrs. Erwin (50th Anniv. - 25 May 1953)

Mr. and Mrs. Graham Thayer and son, Bruce, Mr. Harley Thayer and Mr. and Mrs. Henry Binning left Saturday morning for Oakfield and stopped for dinner at the Jennings Harger home in Baraboo, continuing on to Oakfield in the afternoon. Other relatives who went to Oakfield were Mr. and Mrs. Sewell Cook, Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Binning, Unity; and Mr. and Mrs. Rudy Anderson and children, Marshfield; who drove down Sunday morning and all attended the Golden Wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Erwin Schmitz, who were former Unity residents, but have lived in Fond du Lac and Oakfield for many years.

Mr. Schmitz with his father operated a store in Unity in what is known as the Kuehnau building but is now used by the St. Croix Corp. Mrs. Schmitz was the former Mable Thayer, sister of Harley Thayer of Unity.

Seventy-five guests were entertained at dinner at the Sunset Supper Club in Fond du Lac and in the afternoon were entertained at a reception and supper at the Schmitz home at Oakfield. At the dinner, the Toastmaster read an account of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Schmitz from the Marathon County Register of that date in 1903. Mr. Henry Binning and Mrs. Cora Yahr Rheinhart were attendants at the wedding. Others who spoke at the reception were S. A. Cook, Keith Binning, son of Mrs. Cora Binning, and Jack Binning, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Binning, Fond du Lac.

The Unity people returned to their homes Sunday evening.
