Mr. and Mrs. Earl Slinkard of Clovis, who were married June 19, 1920 in San Francisco, observed their golden anniversary at a picnic in Mooney Grove in Visalia.
Hosts were the couple's three children: Donald R. Slinkard, Ted L. Slinkard and Mrs. Richard C. Rozier, all of Fresno. There are 14 grandchildren.
Slinkard retired from farming and real estate in 1967 and is a member of Disabled American Veterans and the Tulare County Historical Society.
Mrs. Slinkard, the former Lella LeMaster, was a Fresno County employee until 1955, worked in the Boy Scouts of America office until 1960, and for the Mental Health Association until 1963. She is a member of the Fresno County Employees Association.
Lella LeMASTER was the daughter of William Clifford and Lella (LEWIS) LeMASTER.
