Pietenpol, Mr. and Mrs. H. J. (Silver - 1911)
Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Pietenpol greeted some 58 of their friends and neighbors last Saturday evening with no little surprise. It was there 25th wedding anniversary and ten days before that their daughters, Vera and Harriet, had sent out invitations for the surprise. Ye Editor’s wife being in the secret had Mrs. Pietenpol and little daughter Beatrice with Mrs. Frank Converse spending the day at our home. Hank joined them there for tea and driving home early in the evening was just in time to greet the arriving guests. The Misses Vera and Harriet assisted by the Misses Vivian Brooks and Frances Smith had in Mrs. Pietenpol’s absence prepared the refreshments of the evening. Mrs. Bartz a close neighbor making only the wedding cake, proper, a magnificent work of art which will long hold an honored place, the bride’s china closet. It being the unanimous voice of those present, that it would be a sacrilege to cut or mutilate this handsome gift. This household is noted for its generous hospitality throughout the whole country side and any social event there is an enjoyable one. The bride and groom were made the recipients of many beautiful pieces which will through the balance of their lives be pleasant reminders of this happy event.
