Staves, Mr. and Mrs. William #2 (Golden - 8 March 1971)

On March 7, Mr. and Mrs. William Staves celebrated their Golden wedding by holding open house in the American Legion Hall. The event was planned by their three children, Mrs. Ralph (Dorothy) Vernor of San Diego, Calif., Dudley Staves of Eau Claire and Mrs. Beverly Beyrer of Colfax. Mr. and Mrs. Stave’s birthdays are on the same day (Nov. 8) and they are the same age.

Two outstanding numbers on the program were a solo, “The Lord’s Prayer,” by Wally Staves, their grandson, and violin selections by Bert Hanby of Merrillan, who had played for their wedding dance. Dudley Staves was the master of ceremonies and the cake was decorated by their daughter, Beverly. Rev. Coram, the Methodist minister of the Humbird- Fairchild circuit, officiated at their wedding in the home of the bride.
