One of the most enjoyable social events of the season was held last Sunday at the home of Mr. and Mrs. R. R. Rost at Lakefield. The occasion was the celebration of the 80th anniversary of the birthday of Mrs. Rost's mother, Mrs. Mary Kephart of Lakefield. The following relatives were present and enjoyed a very happy day together. Mrs. Mary Kephart and son William, Mrs. Rost, Sr., Mrs. Ernest Pearson, Mr. and Mrs. George Blakey and son Orville, Mr. and Mrs. George Meyers, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Meyers, and daughters, Sarah, Helen and Josephine, Mr. and Mrs. James Rost, Mr. and Mrs. R. C. Kephart and children, Gladys and Seth, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Kephart and children, Alfred and Lorraine, Mr. and Mrs. L. N. Kephart, daughters Ruth and Fern, and son Maynard, Mr. and Mrs. Lester Norgrant and daughter, and Mr. and Mrs. R. R. Rost and sons, Leslie, Merlin and Eldon. At noon a bountiful dinner was served which was truly a veritable feast. The centerpiece for the table was a beautiful birthday cake. This was a two story angelfood cake and it was ornamented by 80 red and white candles and it was a beautiful thing. The company were invited for the entire day and before leaving for home they were again seated at tables and served with the most delectable refreshments. Taken altogether the day was greatly enjoyed and will long be remembered by everyone present. The birthday cake tasted even better than it looked and that is saying a good deal. At evening the happy company broke up and dispersed to their homes after wishing Mrs. Kephart many more happy returns of the day.
