Mr. and Mrs. George B. Dickinson of the town of Hull were guests of honor at a reception given Monday evening by their children in honor of their golden wedding anniversary.
The reception was attended by their children, grandchildren, other relatives and a few of the old neighbors and friends.
They were married fifty years ago March 18th, on the farm on which they still live.

Mr. and Mrs. Cramer are now living in California.
