Engaged on Stage
Lakeview Program Center was filled with people Saturday, September 5th, when The Walking Roots Band called Sarah Dence up on stage. Nervous – and excited (for she was only now guessing what was coming), she got up from her seat while the band was ending “a special verse” that seemed most definitely meant for Her!
As the band closed the tune, Toby Moyer dropped to his knee and asked, “Will you marry me?”
“Yes!” she squeaked. The audience cheered!
Toby and Sarah are the first couple to become engaged on stage. Others have gone to their special places around the grounds or on Spruce Mountain. Toby had wanted to attend the Walking Roots Band concert and saw the opportunity for “the question.” He contacted the band, and they worked together on the “special verse” to add to the end of their song.
This was Sarah’s first time at Spruce Lake, but Toby has attended family camp in August since the 1980s.
Congratulations, Sarah and Toby!
