Jennings celebrated their 40lh wedding anniversary wifft an-open house Wednesday evening. They received many gifts from well wishers arid one of, the most en- jdyed i£ a television set, a gift of their children. After spending Christmas at the home of her sister, Mrs Bud Tucker of Mason City, Mrs John Huff has been returned to Mercy hospital at Mason City. Visitors from this area were Mr and Mrs Stanley Gardner oi Algona. Mr and Mrs August Kirschbaum and Mr and Mrs Leo Kirschbaum were among the many visitors at the celebration of Mr and Mrs Harry Bode's golden wedding anniversary. Mr and Mrs Leo Kirschbaum and family and Mr and. Mrs Roland Bode and family were Christmas eve supper guests at the August Kirschbaum home. Mr ahd Mrs August Kirschbaum spent Christmas day with the Roland Bodes while Mr and Mrs Leo Kirschbaum spent the day with her mother, Mrs Elizabeth Mergen of Whittemore. Mr and Mrs Wilford Ward and family took a chance on the weather this time and went to Colo for the Christmas weekend. Lloyd Wise and Mr and Mrs Frank Wise of Mason City were dinner guests of Mr and Mrs Mack Wise on Christmas. Mr and Mrs John Strattbn and Mr and Mrs Frank Stratton and family of Mason City and Mr and Mrs Clarence Huff and family were Christmas guests at the ..Max Stratton home. At least, one bachelor fared pretty well as Ralph Yanser was also a dinner guest. ;_ • f • Elmer and Albert Tech were Visitors in the home of their sister, Mrs Cecil Rourke at Britt.. ..It was a special Chrfstmas for Mrs Nell Opheim as all of her children were home for the holidays. In additio'h to Alfred, Paul and Joyce at home, Drusilla came from Minneapolis and John came from Montana. The visit at home was a little rough on Drusilla as she fell while skating and injured her knee. Mrs Opheim has displayed one of the most striking Christmas lighting decorations this season. The population stays about the same with residents coming and going this winter. Mr and Mrs Art Klein and family are spending a nice winter in Fairhope, Alabama. Mrs Klein dropped a card to all her fellow Friendly Club members making sure to mention the 75 degree temperature and the wonderful sunshine. This community must have some hold on its residents in spite of the weather as it gets a little later each winter before Mary McMahon heads south. She isn't planning on leaving for Dallas until some time in January this year where she will visit with Mr and Mrs Charles Hennigan and family. Word has been received from Mr and Mrs Martin Mimbaxrh that they were finally leaving Washington and their new grandson, the day after Christmas. After visiting awhile along the way with relatives in Minnesota we should see them pull in any day now. Glenn GabrieJson, accompanied by Glennda, attended the funeral of an old family friend in his former home town of Ellsworth. On the way -home they spent a few minutes in the ditch because of an icy spot in the road. Glenn's driving surely can't be blamed as the fellow pulling them out said they were the third car to be pulled out so fa):. New Years Eve is the quiet affair of a small town with lights out and the streets rolled up about nine as usual. Tuesday, January jS, 1956 Algona (la.)
