October 14, 1931:  wedding of Nick Stadnyk and Mary Leschyshyn

I found a paragraph about Mom and Dad's wedding in FIFTY YEARS YOUNG by Marion S. Turetski. 

The book says that The Holy Ghost Ukrainian Greek-Orthodox parish in Petlura, Manitoba was founded in 1931, and

 “The first wedding performed in the newly-formed parish occurred six months after its incorporation.  Nick Stadnyk and Mary Leschyshyn exchanged wedding vows at the sacrament of matrimony by Father D. Leschyshyn at the home of Marianko and Annie Bantrock on October 10, 1931.” (page 11).
The correct date is October 14, 1931.  I think the error  stems from the date chosen for Mom and Dad’s Golden Wedding Anniversary.
