Also assisting at the reception were Mrs. Stella Herrington. Mrs. James Brennan. Ruth Anne Bowers and Mrs. Lawrence Bowers.

    Nearly 200 friends and relatives signed the guest book, coming from Hiawatha, Holton, Soldier, Topeka. Rossville, Eskridge, St. Marys, Mayetta, Emmett, and Delia. They brought many lovely gifts.

    Alta and Nels were married at the U. B. Church at Adrian, March 6, 1899, by the Rev. J. Wykert. Two of his children attended the reception, Lydia and Olin.

    There were three in attendance at the reception that were present at the wedding 60 years ago. Chris Thompson, Lin Keller and Lillie Keller Worthington.

    Their first home was one mile west of their present one and they have spent their entire married life in this community. They have led an active life taking part in all community affairs. Although confined to a wheelchair, Alta does most of her house work and pieces quilts for pastime. Nels still farms 400 acres of land and every nice day finds him on one of his new tractors in the field.

    They have served their community well and thru the years Nels has held many a public office.

    They are the parents of five living children, Stella Herrington, Silver Lake; Ina and Curtis of Topeka; Emma Bowers and Christina Bowers, Delia.

    They enjoy television but most of all they enjoy the visits from friends and relatives.
