  Hear ye, hear ye....

  You are cordially invited to attend, participate in, contemplate, and/or applaud the celebration of Gordon and Roxana's 50th Anniversary. 

  Saturday, July 11, 2009
  10 AM - 2 PM

  Maple Grove Evangelical Free Church
  8585 Rice Lake Road
  Maple Grove, MN 55369

  50 Years..... 5 Decades..... How do you celebrate the marriage between two people that has grown and evolved for over half a century?  Where do you begin?  With their children?  Their extended family?  Their friends and the numerous people whose lives they have touched?  Or their life-long relationships with colleagues and co-workers?  Does one start with their spiritual journey?  Perhaps one could start with their dedication to challenge "the norm" and the standard perspective of the world.

  I wonder if anyone attending the wedding between Gordon and Roxana in 1959 considered what the relationship would look like 25 years down the road - much less 50.  Did anyone have any idea that this union would see the world, from the shores of Lake Michigan to the islands of the Far East? 

  Please join us on Saturday, July 11, 2009 in Maple Grove, Minnesota (just outside of Minneapolis) as family and friends celebrate the 50th Wedding Anniversary of Gordon and Roxana Harper.  Bring only your sense of humor, your stories, your pictures and your memories, if you can find them!  (No gifts, please)

  Lunch and cake will be provided - we will have a time for games, a Wall of Wonder, reflection and fun.  Children are welcome and everyone may come and go as they please.

  We look forward to seeing you all there!

  Sincerely, the Harper Family (Geoffrey, Stuart, and Elena, et. al.)

  Please RSVP to Elena by June 20th at elena at durango.net or 970-375-9049.

  I apologize for the late notice, but we really hope you can attend. 
  If not, we'd appreciate a story or photo that we can include in our
  WOW, or relate at the event. 

  Grace and Peace!
