Full Text

A "surprise" party to mark the 50th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Charles A. Kilgallen of 3 Slessor Blvd. is awaiting the couple this afternoon at the Central Avenue home of their son, Lewis Kilgallen. Mr. Kilgallen and his wife Grace sprung the news of the surprise golden wedding anniversary party on their parents last weekend. The senior Kilgallens, who moved to Grimsby only six months ago, were married May 19, 1921 in Montreal. For the past 15 years Mr. Kilgallen had been classified advertising manager at the Wallaceburg News. He retired last November. To help commemorate the day, the couple's two daughters - Mrs. T.S.(Thelma) Larlee of Paris, Ont., and Mrs. Eric (Shirley) Smith of Goderich, Ont. - will be in town for the anniversary. The Kilgallens have nine grandchildren and one great granddaughter, who will also be at the reception. Since it is a surprise party, not all the Kilgallen's own family could come on short notice, but the couple are expecting guests from St. Lambert and Montreal, Quebec.
