Full Text

Over 100 guests were received by Mr. and Mrs. William Sangster, Elizabeth street, when they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary last Thursday.

Their daughter, Mrs. Howard Young, assisted in receiving while their granddaughter, Anne Young, answered the door.

A suitably inscribed Bible was presented to Mr. and Mrs. Sangster by the Rev. J.P. McLeod from St. John's Presbyterian Church.

Wires were received from England and other places, together with many cards, flowers and beautiful gifts.

Mrs. J.H. Gibson and Mrs. Alex Scott poured tea in the afternoon and Mrs. J.P McLeod and Mrs. A. Stevenson in the evening.

The beautifully decorated table was centred by a three-tier wedding cake. An interesting fact was that Mr. Sangster wore his wedding suit of 50 years ago.
