Brandels celebrate 70 years of marriage

Eighteen family members gathered at the Praha Haus Family Restaurant on Thursday, May 10, to honor Lawrence and Angela Brandel of New Prague for 70 years of marriage.

While their anniversary won't be until June 14, it was decided to hold the celebration last week since many family members were in the area.

The Brandels were married June 14, 1937, at St. Andrew's Church in Fairfax. They are long-time New Prague area residents, having farmed outside the city. In the 1950s, they operated Brandel's Bar in the building that currently houses Miller's Tap.
