An unusually happy event was celebrated on Monday, May 11th, when Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Hermiston of Grimsby Beach were At Home to their friends in the afternoon and evening on the occasion of their golden wedding anniversary. About 150 relatives and friends called to extend best wishes to the bride and groom of 50 years. Mr. and Mrs. Hermiston were married at Listowel on May 11, 1886, by Rev. Mark Turnbull and resided there for 25 years where Mr. Hermiston carried on business. For the past 15 years they have lived at Grimsby Beach.

Many beautiful gifts and flowers were received by the honored couple accompanied by heartiest felicitations.

Adding interest to the celebration was the fact that their two grandchildren were christened during the day at their home. One is the son of their daughter, Norma,(Mrs. Hatter of Beamsville) and the other the son of their son, Mr. Ross Hermiston of Ottawa. It was also Mrs. Hatter's wedding anniversary.

But 3 guests who were at their wedding are now alive and these 3 were among the guests present. Mr. Arnold Cosburn and Mr. Luscho of Lima, Peru, South America were in attendance as well. Other out-of-town guests were present from Listowel, Toronto and Ottawa.

The Independent joins with a wide circle of friends in extending to Mr. and Mrs. Hermiston sincere wishes for many more years of good health and happiness.
