Several Hundred Friends Gather and Help to Celebrate the Silver Anniversary – Barbecue and Musical Numbers Featured the Event.

(By A. W. Hicks)
Spencer, Sept. 16 – In celebrating their silver wedding on Saturday Mr. and Mrs. Chas A. Weant residing near Spencer, entertained several hundred of their friends and neighbors at a sumptous [sic] feast including a splendid barbecue. The event has been well arranged by Mr. Weant and half a hundred families residing in Franklin township had been invited. An enjoyable program consisting of music and addresses had been provided. Devotional exercises were conducted by Rev. Floyd B. Lingle of Spencer, and a welcome was given in a cordial manner by Mr. Weant. Other speakers included Rev. D. W. Fry, of Mocksville, and Rev. T. L. Cashwell of Statesville. In the course of his address, which recalled many incidents of interest to the family, Rev. Cashwell presented a handsome ring to Mrs. Weant, the gift of her husband, while a splendid silver tea set was presented to Mr. and Mrs. Weant by their children. The music was a feature of the occasion, a number of old time songs being well rendered. “Love at Home,” was sung in an impressive manner by the children and the large crowd present was thrilled by the songs as well as by the addresses which were very touching. Guests from a distance included persons from Davidson, Davie, Iredell, Cabarrus, Rowan, and other counties. Barbecued pigs and lamb was a distinct feature of the occasion, while the neighbors literally weighted down the long tables with heavy baskets of good things to eat. The great crowd ate to its fill and there was plenty left. The barbecue was done in an artistic manner by Messrs. William Kester, Luther Weant, Dan Leonard and Mr. Weant, and those who ate declared it to be one of the best given in this section.

Mr. Weant was never happier than when he was surrounded by something like three hundred of his neighbors, all gathered to congratulate him and Mrs. Weant on passing the 25th mile-post in their married life and to wish them many more years of success and continued happiness.
