Mr. and Mrs. George A. Corman, old and highly respected residents of Saltfleet township, on Monday received a deluge of congratulations from their many friends, both throughout this district and outside points, on the occasion of their golden wedding anniversary.
On Saturday night their old homestead, "Ontario Cottage", on "Lakeside Farm", was the scene of a happy family celebration when their children and grandchildren to the number of 40 gathered to honour them. The home was artistically decorated and above the long dining table, prettily decorated with bowls of golden flowers, candles and a beautiful wedding cake, hung a large wedding bell, golden streamers reaching to the corners of the table. At the conclusion of the dinner, a toast was proposed by Burton Corman, who presented Mr. and Mrs. Corman with a gift from the family.
Until recently, George Corman has been actively interested in public affairs, having served for many years as a school trustee of S.S. 4, Saltfleet, and as a member and reeve of the Saltfleet township council. He was for a lengthy period of time secretary-treasurer of the South Wentworth Liberal association. He was also a member of the official board of the Stoney Creek United Church.
Mr. and Mrs. Corman, who still enjoy the best of health, have 8 children: 6 daughters, Mrs. R.A. Cameron, Harriston; Mrs. J. Arthur Ecker, Beamsville; Mrs. Walter W. Lee, of Adams, Mass.; Mrs. S. Virgil Hopkins, of Burlington; Miss Hazel, Queenston, and Miss Doris, at home; and two sons, Burton E. Corman and Ellis H. Corman, both of Stoney Creek.
