The festivities are well underway for the celebration in "America's Official Fourth of July City" here is Seward. We participated in a "Couples Reception" at St. Johns this afternoon for folks who have celebrated their "50th Anniversary". Pictured are Lola and Raymond Schildt who have been married for 68 years. They still live on their farm in the Middle Creek area and lost their barn to the recent Mother's Day Tornado. They have lived on the same farm for many years and we visited about some of the "old timers" that lived in the neighborhood. This is the area where my Walker Grandparents lived for many years and had and I had opportunity to know many of the people. The reception was a very nice event. People were given an opportunity to tell their "stories" which were most interesting.
