Lindau, Albert/Amanda (Gold - 16 DEC 1964)

Mr. and Mrs. Albert Lindau of Dorchester (Clark Co., Wis.) were the honored guests at an early celebration of their golden wedding anniversary Saturday evening at Sportsman’s Park, Colby.

Between 350 and 400 guests came for the festivities which included a social hour from 8 to 9, followed by dancing with music provided by the children, relatives and friends of the honored couple.

Special entertainment featured musical and novelty numbers by two grandsons, John and Steven Goldamer, and two songs by Mrs. James Daellenbach, wife of a grandson, all of Abbotsford.

Friends staged a mock wedding with the following principles: Bob Uhlig of Abbotsford, bride; Mrs. Dan Abel of Park Falls, groom; Mrs. Emil Uhlig of Curtiss, matron of honor; Miss Vangie Hartl of Onalaska, bridesmaid; Mrs. Harvey Kademan of Curtiss, best man; Mrs. Al Uhlig, Abbotsford, groomsman; Mrs. Adrian Strom of Abbotsford, trainbearer, and Allen Uhlig, Abbotsford, ring bearer.
