South Starksboro - Mr. and Mrs. Ambrose Tart celebrated their golden wedding Saturday, September 23, by inviting a company of relatives and friends, about 75 in number. Among the wedding festivities was a road pig, turkey and luxuries too numerous to mention. Mr. and Mrs. Tart have always lived here, having had their share of trials and hard work in their early life and are now prosperous farmers.
