Mr. and Mrs. Fred Kuester, Loyal, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on Saturday, Nov. 14, at the Legion Hall in Thorp.

The hall was decorated with bells, candles, and flowers, and centering the dining table was a large three tiered Golden Wedding cake. Eight granddaughters of the Luesters served as table waitresses.
