On Saturday, June 29, 1971 an 11:00 Mass was celebrated at the Holy Family Church, Stanley, for the intention of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Ciolkosz, who observed their golden wedding anniversary. Three of their granddaughters, Gail Skaleski, Denise Soborowicz, and Kim Ciolkosz, escorted them down the aisle, carrying a basket of flowers given to the anniversary couple by all the grandchildren. After Mr. and Mrs. Ciolkosz renewed their vows, they and their attendants of fifty years, Mrs. Martha Cesafsky and Mr. and Mrs. Mike Cieslik, received a special blessing from the pastor. Two of their children, Marlene and Philip, carried up the offertory.

A dinner for about 100 friends and relatives was served at 12 o'clock in the Holy Family Church parlors. Philip, one of their sons, welcomed and expressed on behalf of his brother and sisters, thanks and appreciation to all of the guests for taking the time to attend and extend their congratulations to his parents on their 50th wedding anniversary. After the dinner, a reception was held in their honor at the Legion Hall in Stanley, where music, dancing and refreshments were served.
