Go Dean!!! I’m sure you led a great class

Wow!!! This is awesome! What's the capacity of the class? How many weeks do the sessions last? I'm sure with one cycle left it'll be too late for me so I'll have to catch the next session.

One year ago today, David and Kathy met at the Lincoln Community Center. On May 18, 2019, they tied the knot at the very same place. We're so happy that this romance was able to flourish through walking together at our facility. The story, in David's words, is below. Worth the read!

"Kathy & I both lost our spouses in 2016 after long marriages (mine was 27 years, hers 34 years). We had a mutual friend at 1st Baptist Church in Hammond – I would see Kathy sitting with her. I thought Kathy was really pretty and on Memorial Day 2018 at a special Memorial Day service at Memory Lane Memorial Park I asked our mutual friend if she thought her friend (whose name I didn’t even know yet) would go out with me if I asked her. She offered to check for me. Two Sundays later, after an evening church service, she introduced us. Kathy made it clear she wasn’t looking for someone to date but said that she walked at the Lincoln Center every morning and would be happy to have a walking partner. She told me the time she usually got there and it was a little earlier than I cared to get up in order to drive all the way from Miller to meet her so it seemed like we wouldn’t get together. But, the next morning (6/11/18) I woke up at 5 A.M. so I thought I might as well get up and drive the 30 minutes to Highland for a walk. I got to the Lincoln Center before she did and sat down to wait. When she came in I could tell she was surprised to see me. We walked and talked for 30 or 40 minutes before she had to go to work. I had a great time. So, I got up and did it again the next morning. She was surprised again. This became the routine and we started to know each other as pretty good friends but she made it clear she was not looking for romance. So, I just kept showing up and walking with her. You can get to know someone walking and talking for 30 or 40 minutes every day. These days we walk for an hour or so (2 ½ miles). Soon we were going on a Saturday night date, then another and another. By late August I knew I was in love and told her that on August 25 - she just said “I know you do”. Then on September 4 she wrote me a note telling me she loved me, too. On January 26 this year I asked her to marry me in front of about 500 people at a church banquet and she said “yes”. We planned a church wedding at Kathy’s church (Casa de Gracia, South Holland, IL) but because we are Indiana residents we had an Indiana license. That meant that we needed to have the legal ceremony at an Indiana address. Because our friendship began and our romance flourished while walking at the Lincoln Center we felt it was the perfect place to have it. Laura in the office helped us secure a room to use on the morning of May 18 – for the legal ceremony to be performed before the church ceremony that afternoon. One of our new friends that we met walking mornings (Sandy) came to the Lincoln Center ceremony. We are grateful to the Lincoln Center for many things – not the least of which is allowing us to use the room for our vows to be exchanged – but also for the gymnasium we walk in each morning and the many new friends that we see each morning as we walk. We also look forward to Sylvester’s happy greeting each day. He seems to be Lincoln Center’s ambassador of cheer. Most of those who walk in the morning are the same familiar faces each day and we miss those who sit out a day or two. All in all – we recommend a morning walk at the Lincoln Center as being a wonderful way to start the day. We thank the Lord for these blessings." - David Connor
