Wedding Anniversary of Hughie and Arlie Earp

December 24, 1967....does anyone know what that date signifies? Yes, I know it was Christmas Eve, but that is not the answer I am looking for. Maybe I should restate it as December 24,, does that date ring a bell? How about ringing a wedding bell? That wedding bell would be ringing for Hugh Earnest Earp and Arlie Avenell Flatt who were married on that date in 1916.

In January of 1967 Hughie and Arlie celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a reception in their home in Stroud, OK. All of the children and grandchildren and great grandchildren were there. I was there. Were you?
Here you'll see a photo of Huey and Arlie on their wedding day Dec. 24, 1916. Also, you'll see a photo of Huey and Arlie taken 50 years later. They were still a handsome couple.

Happy Anniversary Grandma and Grandpa!
