Park Rapids couple celebrates 70-year marriage next week
They met at a chivaree 75 years ago.
Carus rode in from Fertile on his Harley Davidson to attend a newlyweds' noisy, mock serenade. Melva arrived from Erskine, a beau at her side.
But not for long.
Carus began wooing Melva and within a few years the couple was married in a rural Erskine church.
