POPULAR YOUNG COUPLE WED
The home of Mr. and Mrs. John Gerner, in West Creek township, was the scene of a very pretty wedding at 11 a.m. Tuesday, June 10, 1924, when their eldest daughter, Lulu, became the bride of Virgil Clark. To the strains of the wedding march, played by Miss Mary Gerner, of Minonk, Ill., the young couple, attended by Mr. and Mrs. Harry Hilzely, entered the room and took their places beneath the arch, and the beautiful ring ceremony was performed by Rev. Fred Gibson, pastor of the Christian church. After the ceremony a bounteous dinner was served to the fifty relatives and friends present. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. N.E. Clark and has been employed at Grant Bros. store for several years. Both bride and groom are among our most popular young people and their many friends extend congratulations. The newly weds left Tuesday evening for a trip to Minonk and other points in Illinois, where they will visit relatives. The out of town guests at the wedding were: the Misses Mary, Esther and Katie Gerner and Theodore Gerner, of Minonk, Ill.; Mr. and Mrs. Ed Plummer and son, of Chicago; Mr. and Mrs. Fay Christie, of East Chicago.
