Mr. and Mrs. Jerome Walsh will observe their Golden Wedding anniversary at a celebration Sunday, June 7.

Open house will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. and again from 7 to 9. Friends and acquaintances are invited to call.

Jermoe Walsh and Martha Boerschel were married June 4, 1903, at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Boerschel, in Riverton township west of Nashua.

The couple have resided in this Big Four county region ever since. They lived for almost two years at Clarksville, where Jerome was a mail carrier, and then farmed in Butler county for three years.

Following this he purchased a farm in Floyd county, west of Nashua and tilied the soil there for 12 years, until going into business in Nashua.

He operated a feed and veal business here, and was for many years the largest buyer of stock in this area. He retired from this business seven or more years ago.

Mr. and Mrs. Walsh has two sons. Their older boy, Dale, was killed, with his wife in an automobile accident near Hawkeye in 1935.

The second son, Clark Walsh, is the eminently-successful owner and operator of the Walsh Manufacturing co., now located in Charles City.

Mr. and Mrs. Walsh have given their time to public and church service. Jerome was assessor in Floyd county for nine years. He is now, and has been for some time, treasurer of St. John's Lutheran church in Nashua. Mrs. Walsh is a past president of the Ladies Aid of that church, and is now secretary of the group.
