"One notable event was their 50th wedding anniversary. We inveigled them to come to New York on some trumped up excuse, the family loaded up in Pop's and Morris Blatt's car, and when we arrived in the Hall, they had an overwhelming surprise. Uncle Aaron and Tante Gittel came from Buffalo, Uncle Zalmon and his wife all the nieces and nephews, cousins, and of course our children, including Louis who was then engaged to Ruth. Mother cried, Father was shaken, and all he could think of to say was: "at least you could have told me to change my pants."

A golden wedding anniversary surprise party was given to Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Kreinik of Brighton Beach, N.Y., on Sunday, Nov. 11, 1930, by their children, Mr. and Mrs. Elias Jacobowitz of Jersey City, Mr. and Mrs. Irving Kreinick of Brockton, Mass., Mr. and Mrs. [Nettie] Morris Blatt, Mr. and Mrs: [Mae] Aaron [Artie] Pepis, Mr. and Mrs. [Celia] George [Isadore] Rauschkolb, Miss Rebekah [Ruth?] Kreinik and Miss Anna Kreinik [Tianna]. The party was held at 17 West Twenty-fourth Street, New York City.

The couple were led into the hall, with the expectation of viewing the place in order to take it themselves for a later date. There were seventy guests present, relatives and friends, who gave them a warm welcome.

There were tears of joy in the eyes of many as the seventy-year-old bride and seventy-two-year old bridegroom were led under the canopy by their grandchildren, Ruth S. Jacobowitz of Jersey City and Horace C. Kreinick of Brockton, Mass. Dr. Kuperstein of Brighton Beach performed the little ceremony and made a touching address.

Many gifts in gold were presented to the couple, but the crowning event of the dinner which followed was the presentation by their children of a return passage to Europe. Mr. and Mrs. Kreinik will visit their birthplace in Austria [Zglobien or Sędziszów Poland?], as well as other countries, some time in the Spring.
