After the mass, family and friends attended a beautiful and special celebration with a dinner and dance at Falls City Community Hall.
Their children presented them with a very special gift from Rome, Italy. The gift was an Apostolic Blessing given by HIS HOLINESS POPE BENEDICT XVI on the occasion of their 50th Wedding Anniversary invocating abundant divine graces.
Sam and Connie are still very active with their families, church, school and community events.
