Neillsville Locals (23 July 1964)


Sunday guests at the Walter Durst home were Mr. and Mrs. Jake Wallace of Lake Villa, Ill., who were returning home from a vacation trip into northern Wisconsin.  Joining the group for dinner Sunday were Mr. and Mrs. Tony Karnitz, Albert Karnitz, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Karnitz and son and Mrs. Amelia Montash.


Mr. and Mrs. Leon Schnabel and family of the Town of York, and Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Seelow and family of rural Granton, spent the weekend in Milwaukee with their parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Seelow, Sr., and other relatives. They attended a farewell party at the Lucy Harrington home for William Seelow, Jr., who with his wife, the former Karen Harrington, and daughter left for Wednesday for Germany. Billy will be stationed there for two years with the Army.  Two of Frederick Seelow’s children remained for the week in Milwaukee with relatives.


Mr. and Mrs. Russell Drake, who were accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Robert Drake and family of La Crosse, have returned from a vacation trip into Northern Wisconsin.  At Ashland they visited the Rev. and Mrs. Lloyd Mauer and family, who recently left Neillsville.


Mr. and Mrs. Louis Durst and two children have returned to Scottsdale, Ariz., following a two-week visit with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Durst.


Elmer Buddenhagen, accompanied by Franklin Reindel, both of Neillsville, last week Thursday visited Mr. Buddenhagen’s home town of Seymour. There they attended the county fair and saw a number of people whom Mr. Buddenhagen knew when he left Seymour in 1900.  On their return trip, they stopped for a few minutes at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Hovey and family in Bonduel.  Mr. Hovey is a former Neillsville High School Football coach (in the 1950s), the last to have a Cloverbelt conference football champion.
