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.


  1. Happy Anniversary!!!

  2. Happy Anniversary to you!
