Schmidt, Mr./Mrs. August (Gold - 31 MAR 1927)
Mr. and Mrs. August Schmidt, who live about 6 miles northwest of town (Dorchester, Clark County, Wis.), celebrated their golden wedding on Thursday, Mar 31st, 1927, with their children, grandchildren, relatives, and friends about them. They had a very pleasant day visiting and feasting and at 1 o'clock they renewed their marriage vows, Rev. Bizer officiating and Mr. and Mrs. Gust Genrich acted as witnesses. The bride was dressed in a lovely brown dress trimmed with old gold lace and wore an old gold scarf about her shoulders, which made her a very beautiful bride, indeed.
Dorchester is very fortunate in having had a good many golden weddings and we are proud of the fact. Fifty years together, and during that time interwoven was joy, sorrow, pain, perhaps some hardships, and much happiness, and as we look back the joy overshadows the sorrow we knew God is good.
This worthy couple is fortunate in having their children living near them so that they can see and enjoy their company often.
The guests enjoyed with the bridal party a very fine dinner at six and the evening was spent visiting. At midnight another delicious meal put in appearance shortly after which, the guests departed for their homes hoping to help Mr. and Mrs. Schmidt celebrate their diamond wedding.
The following guests enjoyed this happy day at the Schmidt home: Rev. J. Bizer, Mr. and Mrs. G. H. Genrich, Mr. and Mrs. Jake Boxrucker, Mr. and Mrs. George Hofmann and daughter Irene, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Boxrucker and daughters Celia and Josephine, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Lapp and daughter Celia, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Miller, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Wagner, Mr. and Mrs. Noah Small and daughters Louise and Charlotte, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Wagner, Miss Anna Miller, and Messrs. Frank Miller, Carl Froble, Raymond and Charlie Lapp, George Wilke, Harold Winchell, Henry, Richard, and Gust Fisse, and Wm. Miller.
The Clarion joins the many friends in offering congratulations to the happy couple.
