Full Text

When Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Ockenden of Hamilton, formerly of Grimsby, celebrated their 50th wedding day recently, their wedding attendants of 50 years ago were present, Miss Ida Newman, Niagara Falls, and Mr. William Neal, Woodstock.

For the reception the rooms of their home were banked with beautiful flowers sent by their many friends, and among other gifts was a large wedding cake with 50 candles, the gift of the choir of the Church of St. Peter.

Honouring the occasion, a family dinner was also held at Belleview, when presentations were made to the couple, and words of appreciation spoken by their eldest son, Stanley.
