Many From Out of Town at Graham Celebration.
An error inadvertently appeared in listing the names of three sons taking part in the Golden Wedding when Rev. and Mrs. Fred A. Graham celebrated that event Thursday.
Fred R. Graham presided at the organ and played the wedding march. Theodore T. Graham sang “I Love You Truly” and George A. Graham gave the bride away.
Among the relatives present were George A. Graham and wife of Lake Linden, Mich, Theodore Graham and wife of McHenry, Il, Fred R. Graham and wife of Jefferson City, Mo, Harley A. Richards and Mrs. Barton Winton of Lamar, Mo, brother and sister of Mrs. Graham; Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Graham, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Chapin, Prophetstown; Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Haring and family of Clinton, Ia; Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Frazier and family of Sterling, and a host of friends. There were representatives, floral pieces and gifts from eight of the church served by Rev. and Mrs. Graham during the 50 years of their ministry.
