Tonica News from Jean Burger: (sic) "Golden Wedding of Mr. and Mrs. A.W. Merritt - Over Two Hundred Seated at the Banquet Tables in Honor of Event - Mr. Amos Wilson Merritt and Miss Sarah Bangs were married at the home of the bride's parents in Rutland with Rev. S.R. Belville as the officiating minister; Miss Hannah Merritt, a sister of the groom acted as the bride's maid, and Mr. Edward Bangs, a brother of the bride, was the groom's best man.

Many of the Lostant friends of Mr. and Mrs. Merritt had been thinking as the 50th anniversary of their marriage was on the 30th of December, 1925, that some suitable celebration of the event was the right thing to have - and Mrs. Mary Mortenson and Mrs. Marjorie Bryan proved the successful ones to plan for and carry out the details of the happy event. Mary is a born leader and our readers are acquainted with her successful management of many social affairs. Both of these ladies tell us they could not have made the "Golden Wedding" a success if it had not been for the willing help of a host of our people.

The new school gymnasium was selected as the best place in which to hold the celebration. The reception committee who met all at the door were Mr & Ms M H Bangs, Mr & Ms M Reynolds, and Mr & Ms I E Merritt......Miss Amanda Bell was the violin soloist accompanied by Mrs. Estella Bell."
