Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Fortek of this city (Thorp, Clark Co., Wis.) celebrated their silver anniversary on Sunday, June 18, 1961.

The special day began by attending Mass at St. Hedwig’s Church with their two daughters and other relatives, where they received a blessing from the Rev. George Becker.

A dinner was served at one o’clock at the Wink Inn Hall with 75 guests present.

Mrs. Fortek was attired in a beige dress with white accessories.

Her corsage was an orchid. Mr. Fortek wore a white carnation boutonniere in the lapel of his suit.

Many gifts, flowers, messages and money were presented the honored couple.

Out of town guests included their daughter Elaine of Chicago, Mr. and Mrs. Allan (Virginia) Christopherson of Withee, Fortek’s grandson, Scott Christopherson, Withee, Mr. and Mrs. Ted Kryck, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Nawrocki and Mrs. Jos. Koziol of Chicago.
