Mr. and Mrs. Kauffman received many lovely gifts and cards. There were two large wedding cakes, gladioli, carnations, and potted mums. Mrs. Elmer Jensen and Mrs. Dorothy Olson, of Unity, sang several selections and Mrs. Jensen gave a prayer. 

For the occasion, Mrs. Kauffman was presented with a corsage of pink carnations by her children and Mr. Kauffman had a boutonniere.
