Mr. and Mrs. James G. Haire of this city (Owen, Clark Co., Wis.), celebrated their golden wedding anniversary last Sunday when a reception in their honor was given at the home of their nephew, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Eklund of Green Bay.
Mr. and Mrs. Haire were married at Moline, Ill., Sept. 9, 1884, by Rev. Langley of the Baptist Church of that city. They came to Clark County in 1908 and settled on a farm south of town. Eleven years ago they moved to Owen, where they have made their home since retiring from farming.
Mr. and Mrs. W.R. Haire of Owen, Mr. and Mrs. Herb Haire and two sons of Minneapolis and Mr. and Mrs. Fred Eklund of Milwaukee were present at the reception.
Robert Eklund, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Earl Eklund, was married last week and his wedding was celebrated at the same time.
The rooms of the Eklund home were prettily decorated with yellow flowers for the occasion. Many messages of congratulations were received by Mr. and Mrs. Haire from friends and relatives. They were also the recipients of several gold coins from relatives, in commemoration of the event.
Mr. and Mrs. Haire are both active and enjoying good health. Their many friends in this vicinity hope that they may have many happy anniversaries with prosperous years intervening.
They returned home from Green Bay yesterday.
