They were attended by the bride's sister, Miss Orrene Gourlay, and R. Leslie Gifford, Canandaigua, who later married.
      Son of the late S.F. Lester, a former YMCA secretary, and Mrs. Lester of this city, Mr. Lester retired in 1952 after 32 years in the milk business. He is now a bus driver for the Canandiagua Central School District. He is a vetera of World War I, a 40 year member of Canandaigua Post American Legion, and a member of its original drum and bugle corps.
      Both Mr. and Mrs. Lester are active members of the First Methodist Church. Mrs. Lester, a registered nurse, is a graduate of Thompson Hospital Nurses Training School. For a number of years, she has been engaged in the catering business.
