No elaborate celebration or party today for George and Alice Shull Nicely who are relaxing at their home on Thorn- croft Drive in Glen Allen. In 1976 many relatives and friends joined Alice and George to celebrate their golden an- niversary with a beautiful reception.

The grandchildren are Brian Nicely, Richmond, and Laura Jane Owens of Prankfurt, Germany.
