Mr. and Mrs. Cord Manning Observe 45th Anniversary
More than 150 friends of Mr. and Mrs. Cord Manning called during open house Sunday afternoon to extend congratulations and best wishes to the couple on the 4th wedding anniversary. The reception was held at the home of the Manning's daughter, Mrs. Darwin Engstrom, who was assisted as hostess by her sister, Mrs. Warren Doolittle.
Linda Engstrom, granddaughter of the Mannings, presided at the guest book.
The beautifully appointed refreshment table was centered with an anniversary cake decorated with pink and white roses. Pouring were Mrs. Wilbur Fisher, Mrs. Jacob Ziegler and Mrs. Irene Vass.
The anniversary cake was baked by Mrs. Sam Faes, who also assisted in making the Mannings' wedding cake 45 years ago, using the same tins to bake the anniversary cake. Mrs. Faes also assisted in serving at the reception yesterday.
Other appointments carried out the pink and white color scheme.
