In recognition of the ooasion they were honored Sunday with a family dinner that was attended by their children and grandchildren. The guests were Mr. and Mrs. Ted Case and family of Blissfield, Mrs. Hope Reister and sons, Mr. and Mrs. Mlton Powell and family of Adrian, Stf.Sgt. and Mrs. Wellington Wotring and family of Adrian, Mr. and Mrs. Amil Filter and family of Palmyra, Mr. and Mrs. Rolland Reister and family of Waldron and Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Allen of Adrian.

Unable to attend were a granddaughter, Mrs. Maryann Baum who is away attending school, and a great grandson Terry August Reister who is ill.

      In the afternoon and evening Mr. and Mrs. Case entertained with an open house, more than 100 guests attending. They received many lovely gifts and flowers. The serving table was laid with a lovely drawnwork linen cloth and decorated with a gold and white floral piece, a gift of the grandchildren, flanked with six lighted tapers. A gold and white wedding cake topped with a golden bell graced one end of the table whle coffee was served from a silver service at the other end.

      An afternoon telephone call came from Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Foor of Everett, PA, cousins of the honored couple. Friends who attended the open house came from Toledo, Detroit, Tecumseh, Ogden, Jasper, Palmyra, Clayton, Blissfield and Adrian.
