Warns, Fred & Katherine (Gold - 9 OCT 1938)

The golden wedding ceremony of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Warns Sr., ages 70 and 69 respectively, took place at the Sacred Heart Church of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), Sunday, Oct. 9th, 1938. Their seven children, of whom six are married, and thirteen grandchildren surrounded the jubilant couple and friends filling the church to its capacity.

High Mass was sung by Rev. Father C.D. Brady. The altar was beautifully decorated and the ceremony ended with a te Deum.

The weather was ideal and in eight cars the celebrants motored to Abbotsford, where a fine dinner was served in the armory hall for the 40 relatives.

Mr. and Mrs. Warns received many valuable presents.

In the evening a reception was held in the Clark Community Hall, where neighbors and friends had a big surprise awaiting them. Two chairs, one a lovely rocker, and the other a reclining chair, were presented to them. Fine music helped to pass the evening in a fittingly decorated hall.

He also served as school clerk for several years.
