Barry and Kay Schrader of DeKalb will observe their 50th wedding anniversary on Sept. 27. They eloped in 1963; this year they will celebrate with sons Todd and Darrin in Breckenridge, Colo. at the wedding of Kay's great-niece Nikki Larson. The couple were both born in DeKalb County but lived in the San Francisco area for 37 years. They retired back to DeKalb in 2006. They decided to forgo an anniversary party, instead making a donation to the DeKalb Public Library building project. Cards can be sent to 511 Roberts Lane, DeKalb, IL 60115.
