Perhaps it’s due to spending time in the presence of great romantic novels and collections of love poetry. Or the elegant new fireplace and sitting area on the main floor. Or could it be the influence of chocolates from the candy jar behind the Circulation Desk?
Whatever the cause, love occasionally blossoms among student workers at the MLRC. And once in a very great while, that love grows so strong and deep that it leads to something permanent, something profoundly holy and beautiful. It leads to a couple making a commitment to share the rest of lives together as husband and wife.
On Sunday afternoon March 6th, former student worker Christopher Parks returned to the MLRC and proposed marriage to current student worker Sara Boettcher. He did it on bended knee, in front of the fireplace, with a single red rose in hand. Old school, and timelessly stylish.
Please join the GFU Libraries in offering Christopher and Sara our very best wishes for a life together filled with deep joy.
May God richly bless the happy couple!
