Love on the ...

It was eight years ago when Jean, an elementary school teacher here in the Kansas City area, saw one of my flyers about The Great Saunter.  Being physically active she decided it was something she wanted to do.  Inviting her boyfriend, knowing that he was not as physically active, she was surprised by his quick and affirmative response.   You see Jim decided this would be a great opportunity to propose marriage  while on their trip to NYC for the Saunter.  He proposed to her at the top of the Empire State Building.  Thus, had Cy Adler never started this event, this would never have happened at such a grand location.  It is interesting how one event can lead to others, and am sure there are many other interesting stories that have happened because of this great event.
