Sixty relatives attended a 50th wedding anniversary dinner Sunday, Oct. 6, 1963, in the American Legion Hall, Neillsville, to honor Mr. and Mrs. Robert Volz. Many other friends attended an open house for the honored couple in the afternoon. The dinner was served by the American Legion and Auxiliary of Neillsville.
