The children and grandchildren of the honored couple joined them for a 7 o'clock dinner at the Club Florena, Medford, after which they all spent a social evening at the Bargenquast home at 511 Butternut St.

Mrs. Bargenquast wore a royal blue dress for the occasion and had a corsage of pink roses and white and gold carnations. A specially decorated cake centered the dinner table.
