A happy new year and a proposal

Our volunteers have been especially rewarded by the market memories and connections that people have shared with us at the Sign a Slate tables in 2016. We’ll try to share some of these sweet stories with you through the new year.

New Year’s Eve gave us a very special case – our first wedding proposal via slate. Daniel and his family did some slick preplanning and had the beautiful slate ready when he and Elaina made their normal market visit on Saturday. The couple just “happened” to stop to learn about the Raise The Roof campaign. Suddenly the slate and ring were revealed and … she said yes!

Elaina really was surprised by Dan’s efforts. And it was a surprisingly emotional moment for all involved, even their newest acquaintances. It’s wonderful to see historic Lancaster Central Market become part of another family history.
