Minnesota for Marriage Announces Winner of the “She Said ‘YES!’” Contest
Steele County Fair Yields Contest Winners and Hundreds of New Marriage Protection Amendment Supporters
Minneapolis – Minnesota for Marriage attended Minnesota’s largest county fair, the Steele County Free Fair, where hundreds of new supporters signed up to support marriage as between one man and one woman.
Eager fair-goers stopped by the Minnesota for Marriage booth to sign Marriage Protection Pledge forms; take home as many VOTE YES buttons, bumper stickers, and yard signs as they could get; and to participate in Minnesota for Marriage’s “She Said ‘YES!’” contest. Couples competed by sharing their wedding proposal story in the hopes of winning a romantic dinner for two, paid for by Minnesota for Marriage.
Steele County’s winners are Jeremy and Caitlin of Owatonna, MN:
It was Friday, December 21, 2007. Our plan for the day was to finish off our Christmas shopping in the cities. The first stop, however, was to be Wedding Day Diamonds to look at “my ring.” We had previously shopped around and FINALLY found one I loved! I did not expect to be proposed to for some time, but I liked to visit my ring when we went to the cities! When we pulled into the parking lot, I was taking my time checking my makeup, and he seemed a bit antsy… We finally went inside and saw Kelly, our jeweler, there. She took us over to the case where my ring was and pulled it out, but this time she handed it to Jeremy. I was a little confused. He took it and look at me and said, “that’s YOUR diamond in there.” I didn’t know what to say, but didn’t really believe him. He got down on his knee and asked the question. I don’t remember, but I think I said “YES!” He stood up and gave me a hug and put the ring on my finger! The rest of the day was spent trying to shop while calling everyone with our news!” The rest is history…—Jeremy & Caitlin, Owatonna, MN
Congratulations to Jeremy and Caitlin!
Minnesota for Marriage is also attending the Minnesota State Fair August 23 through Labor Day, where fair-goers can stop by to learn about the threat to Marriage in our legislature and our courts, and to compete in the State Fair’s “She Said ‘YES!’” contest.
