Saturday, August 22, 1936

Iliffs' & Mildreds' wedding day-
plesant all day-
Rev. Flaxington performed the ceremony with Lewis Hyers as best man and Francis^ as bridesmaid-
Francis & Christine decorated the car-
Fourteen guests for dinner
Mildreds' dress was white and her going away attire was a suit
They left amid showers of rice for Thousand Islands-
Harry took Christine & I to a show this eve "Kelly the 2nd"*

Rev. Flaxington, Mildred Searles & Iliff Dolton's wedding day Aug. 22, 1936

Guest list for the wedding

Marriage announcement in the local paper

Irene's diary of the wedding & announcement pasted in


^"Francis" should be spelled Frances. Frances Sharpsteen was Mildred's younger sister. As Frances was already married & a mother, she would have been Mildred's Matron of Honor, not her bridesmaid.

*Kelly the Second was a movie starring Patricia Kelly & Cecil Callahan.

Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
