Hansens Celebrate 60 Years Of Marriage
What was happening back in the summer of 1954?
Bill Haley and His Comets were singing: "Shake, Rattle And Roll."
Dean Martin was crooning "That's Amore."
Americans were celebrating a robust economy, with U.S. unemployment under 3%.
The New York Stock Exchange reached its highest levels since 1929.
The cost of a stamp was 3 cents.
Dr. Jonas Salk had started inoculating schoolchildren with his polio vaccine. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that race-based segregation in schools is unconstitutional.
And Wayne and Velma Hansen were getting married on July 25, 1954, right here in Dorchester.
A couple of weeks ago, they celebrated their 60th anniversary with a family dinner.
It's not too late to congratulate them on this milestone in marriage. Send your best wishes to Wayne and Velma at: 287 State Highway 15, Dorchester, NE 68343.
