On Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 8, 1930, in the presence of relatives and intimate friends, Miss Laura Strebe, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Abe Strebe, and Mr. Frank Goelden, son of Mrs. F.

Attending the bridal pair were Miss Ellen Wellman and Miss Ethel Strebe, the latter a sister of the bride, and her brother, Clyde Strebe, and Herman Weldon.
The bride wore a beautiful gown of rose colored satin and a jeweled headband and carried a bouquet of pink and white roses and carnations. Miss Wellman’s dress was of blue flat crepe and Miss Strebe wore yellow flat crepe. Both carried flowers to harmonize with their costumes and both wore headbands.
The rooms were beautifully decorated in a color scheme of pink, blue and yellow.
