St. John Lutheran Holds a Wedding Celebration

February 16, a wedding celebration was held at St John Lutheran Church, honoring couples celebrating either their first anniversary or an anniversary that is a multiple of five. 65 people helped celebrate.

Four of the honored couples were in attendance.  They were Bob and Donna Westbrook, Gary and Liz Hainke, Bill and Melanie Molzhan, and Paul and Deb Bienhoff. Treats and fellowship started the time together following church. Next, the Sunday school kids started off the program by singing three songs. Then a game of Oldie Wed was played. Couples were asked questions and had to answer by saying what they THOUGHT their spouse would say.  Needless to say, after lots of laughter, answers were given, points were added, and prizes were given to all couples for being good sports (since no one had very many points).

Poems and stories were then shared in honor of the special anniversaries. Each couple also shared a funny story of their wedding, which was as entertaining as the game!

Bob Westbrook (and wife Donna) 60 years, Gary and Liz Hainke- 10 years, Bill and Melanie Molzahn- 25 years, and Deb and Paul Bienhoff- 45 years.
