Carolers Bring Christmas Sounds to Joe and Christie Wessels

December 22, 2011

Christmas Carolers Brought Sounds of the Season to Joe and Christie Wessels this week. The Wessels will celebrate their 70th Wedding Anniversary on January 2nd, 2012

70th Wedding Anniversary celebrations have started early for Joe and Christie Wessels.

Carolers from First Presbyterian Church brought the sounds of Christmas to families this week.  Here they are posing for a photo at Joe and Christie Wessels home after delivering their vocal gift.

The Wessels (Joe and Christie) will celebrate their 70th Wedding anniversary on Monday Jan 2nd. As the story is told, they planned to be married on New Years Day 1942, but a Minnesota snow storm (remember those?) changed their plans.  So the next day the horses were hitched up to clear a path.  The young couple were married on Jan 2nd at the Bethel Reformed Church near Ellsworth.

Merry Christmas to All – and Happy 70th Anniversary to Joe and Christy Wessels.
