On September 5th a very pleasant afternoon and evening was spent when all the B.T. Beckman children, grandchildren and great grandchildren gathered at the home of Rev. John Beckman at Black Oak in honor of their parents, the B.T. Beckmans to help celebrate their 55th anniversary. Those from a distance were Mr. and Mrs. B.T. Beckman* of Washington D.C. and Miss Irene Beckman of Des Moine, Iowa.
