Wedding Anniversary
Last Saturday evening, Aug. 27th, was the scene of gay festivities at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. George R. Green, of York street, the occasion being the 25th anniversary of their marriage. The grounds were beautifully and tastefully illuminated with Japanese lanterns. At an early hour a hundred invited guests from Newark, Alexandria and the surrounding neighborhood assembled to participate in the pleasures of the evening. Mr. and Mrs. Green, assisted by their daughters, entertained their guests in a most pleasant and cordial manner. Elegant music was furnished by the Outville Cornet Band. Also some very fine vocal and instrumental music was tendered by the guests which added much to the pleasure of the occasion. The worthy couple were the recipients of many beautiful and useful presents. At 10 o'clock refreshments were served after which the time was devoted in having a good time generally. The hand on the dial was pointing to the 'wee sma' hours' when the guests returned to their homes after spending a most delightful time, and wishing such occasions might often occur.
