On Saturday, January 9, the farm home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Mohr, Senior, was the, scene of an outstanding event in the Asquith district when they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary. Mr. and Mrs. Mohr, who were among the earliest pioneers of the district, were married 50 yars (sic) ago in Hartenholm, Holstein, Germany, emigrating to Trenton, Nebraska, in 1887 and coming to Canada in 1903 homesteading on their present farm about 9 miles south of Asquith.

They also have 11 grandchildren.

Their large farm home accommodated 75 relatives and friends on Saturday evening, many old anecdotes were revived and Mrs. Summach played the accompaniments to the old time songs while Miss Jennie Summach played the guitar. Songs were also contributed by Misses Junop and Summach. The happy couple standing under an arch of white bells and streamers, were presented with a purse of gold, the presentation being made by James Smith, to which Mrs. Mohr fittingly replied. A beautifully decorated brides cake, tile work of Mrs. Ralph Mohr, formed the central figure in a delightful buffet luncheon. After midnight had struck, heralding the arrival of the tenth, Mrs. Mohr also also (sic) received congratulations upon her 71st birthday.5
