Mr. and Mrs. Elmer A. Marg, Rt. 2 Granton, were honored at a 50th wedding anniversary open house held Saturday evening, November 30, in the Bamboo Room at Bali Hai Supper Club. The Margs were assisted in the observance by their children.

Elmer A.

The Rev. Herman Brandt was the officiating clergyman. Attendants were Victor Garbisch, brother of the bride, Marion Ure, a close friend, Fred Marg, cousin of the groom, and Hilda Garbisch, sister of the bride. Ella Foemmel was the flower girl.

The Margs lived in the Town of Fremont, in Camas, Wa.; and in the village of Granton, where he operated Marg’s garage, before moving to their present farm home.
