                              Shannon-Morrison

Pretty as it was impressive, was the ceremony at Our Lady of Lourdes church 
in Keswick on Tuesday morning, January 17, by which the lives and fortunes  
of Mary Teresa Shannon and Forrest James Morrison were forever united. The 
nuptial mass was celebrated  by Rev. Thomas  Sheehy and a  large number of  
friends and relatives were present.

The bridal party entered the church to the strains of a wedding march played 
by Mrs. Amanda  Harris, and  the choir  rendered several appropriate hymns  
during mass.

The bride was richly gowned in rose  colored flat crepe with hat to match.  
She was attended by her sister Miss Regina Shannon, who was dressed in blue 
flat crepe with hat to match. The office  of best man was filled by Joseph 
Shannon, a brother of the bride.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride for the 
immediate families. The  decorations were  of rose  and blue,  and a three  
course dinner was served by the Misses  Ellavene Greene, Rita Brady, Clara 
Gries and Delphia Brady.

The bride is the  second daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. J.  Shannon. A charming  
young lady with many accomplishments amply fit her to preside over a happy  
home.

The groom is the  son of Ed  Morrison, and is an  industrious young farmer  
endowed with the ability and ambition to succeed.

The happy couple will be at home on a farm northeast of Keswick.
