John and Melba Kester of Garden City will celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary with a come-and-go reception from 2 to 4 p.m. Nov. 5, 2011, at Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 619 E. Mary St.

Hosts for the occasion will be their children and families: Lynda and Daniel Jordan of Garden City; Norman and Barbara Olson of Weir; and John Kester of Garden City.

John Kester and Melba Story were married Nov. 1, 1966, in Basel, Switzerland. They have 10 grandchildren.

The Kesters plan to be spending a lot of time in Arizona in the future, so their friends are encouraged to stop by the reception and say hello to them.
