The Ritz theatre held a contest when they opened to get married on the stage of the theatre and all of the local businesses donated rings, the dress,home furnishings, etc. My grandfather and all of his friends entered their names as a joke, and my grandfather won! He was seeing my grandmother on the sly back then, her parents were right off the boat from italy and didn’t want her dating, but he asked her if she wanted to get married anyway and she said yes! They got msrried on the stage on June 2, 1931. I know it was in the local papers back then and I would love to see any information if anyone has any, on the contest or the wedding
