Mr. and Mrs. Edmond Nehls Entertain in Honor of Happy Event
NEIGHBORS MAKE MERRY
Mr. and Mrs. Edmond Nehls, a popular and highly esteemed couple of the town of Hustisford, kept open house on Monday, February 23, 1914, and elaborately entertained one hundred and fifty of their neighbors and friends in honor of their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. It was indeed a merry gathering in every way befitting the happy event which it commemorated.
A wedding ceremony was performed at 3 o'clock in the afternoon by Rev. August Kirchner of the Lutheran church, during which Mr. and Mrs. Nehls renewed their marriage vows, the impressive services taking place in the presence of their six children. Mrs. Nehls was very becomingly gowned for the joyous occasion in a dress of silver gray. At the conclusion of the ceremony the "silver bride and groom" were showered with hearty congratulations and presented with handsome gifts as mementoes of the eventful day.
Then followed a sumptuous supper after which mirth, music, and the dance reigned supreme until midnight, when another bountiful repast was served. The festivities were again resumed and the guests amused themselves with dancing and other pleasures until an early hour in the morning, music being furnished by Mr. Willie Druecke of this city, which was enjoyed by all.
The guests included all of the neighbors of Mr. and Mrs. Nehls and many relatives from outside places, some of the latter being Misses Selma and Alma Breuring of Watertown, Misses Ella, Esther, and Hilda Fischer? of Milwaukee, Mr. and Mrs. William ~~~~~~~ of Watertown, Mr. and Mrs. August Nell of Neosho, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Voss of Horicon, Mr. and Mrs. Gust Friske of Juneau, Mr. and Mrs. William Fischer of Iron Ridge, and many others.
The well known hospitality of the Nehls home was never more at its best than on the occasion of the silver jubilee of its popular host and hostess and the merriment and delightful social intercourse enjoyed at this probably never equaled in the community. While the guests may have felt a pardonable envy at the blessings which nature has so bounteously vouchsafed to this fireside, yet the sentiment uppermost in the hearts of all is that Mr. and Mrs. Nehls may enjoy many more useful years of a happy life together.
