GERARDS OBSERVE 50TH
More than one hundred and fifty
relatives and friends, most of whom
were from Audubon and Guthrie
counties, helped Mr. and Mrs. George
Gerard celebrate their golden wed-
ding anniversary at their farm home
east of Guthrie Center on Primary
Mr. and Mrs. Gerard were mar-
ried at Cambridge, Ill., June 18, 1876.
They came to Iowa in 1879, settling
in Audubon county, where they lived
until 1904, when they moved to Guth-
rie county. Mr. and Mrs. Gerard have
two daughters, Mrs. Charles R. Gar-
nett, Hamlin, and Mrs. Willis L. Mc-
Affee, Estherville, who were here to
enjoy the day.
The Speedway Social Club, of which
Mrs. Gerard is a member, came in
a body and brought a beautiful gift.
Among the beautiful gifts received
was a wedding cake sent by a niece
who lives at Quincy, Ill.
Mrs. Mae Shank read a beautiful
poem which was written by herself.
