Mr. and Mrs. Henry Helm of Granton will observe their golden wedding anniversary Saturday, June 30, with an open house from 2 to 4 p.m. at Zion Lutheran Church. The Helms were married on that same date 50 years earlier, at the same church by the Rev. Martin Hasz. Both are members of Zion.
Henry Helm was born October 20, 1897, in the Town of Lynn and attended District No. 1 School there. Mrs. Helm, the former Clara Garbisch also has an October birthdate, having been born on the seventh of that month in 1898. She attended the Wild Rose School in the Town of Grant. In 1924 the couple rented a farm from Margaret Foemmel and lived there for three years. Then they bought the former William Kelpin farm in the Town of Grant in 1927 and farmed on the property for 40 years before moving to the village of Granton.
Mr. Helm was elected to the office of Grant Town clerk in 1935 and held that post for 18 years. He served on the ASC town committee for 21 years and on the county committee for one year and served as president of Zion Lutheran Church for 16 years and as an elder for two years.
Mrs. Helm has been a member of the Zion Ladies Aid for 40 years. She is active in doing domestic work and sewing and enjoys her flower garden.
The Helms are parents of a daughter, Mrs. Sammy (Elaine) Seefeldt of Melrose and two sons, Donald Helm of Marion and Roger Helm who operates the home farm on Rt. 2 Granton. There are seven grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
