The Augustana Lutheran Church of St. James, Hanska, Minn., was the scene of a pretty wedding on Sunday, Sept. 4th, 1955, at 3 o’clock when Miss betty Ann Froland, Chicago, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Froland of Hanska, became the bride of Gilbert Engholm of Chicago and Ft. Eustis, Va., son of Mr. and Mrs. Nils Engholm of Chicago.


The Rev. Glenn V. Olmon performed the ceremony before an altar banked with white chrysanthemums and white gladioli and candle lighting.  The color scheme of blue and white was carried out on the pews.


The bride’s parents were also married in the church.


Aurora Kading presided at the organ, and accompanied by Carol Anding of Hudson, Wis., when she sang, "Crown with Thy Benediction," before the ceremony, and Lee Hagglund of St. Peter sang "The Lord’s Prayer," during the ceremony.


Miss Marjorie Froland, sister of the bride, was maid of honor and bridesmaids were Gladys Starnes, Landsong, Ill., sister of the groom, Barbara and Lois Jungas, Mountain Lake, cousins.
