Just another typical day at the Highland Woodworking store in Atlanta. Except for this: Rita Lemons proposed marriage to her woodworker boyfriend, Chester Gibbs, over in our Festool department. (Or was it in the Finishing Supplies? Okay, maybe it was closer to the Fastener department, how fitting!) For the record, Chester said “Yes!”
Friends since their college days back in the early 1980s, they first began dating this past April. Unbeknownst to Chester, Rita picked Highland Woodworking as the venue for the proposal (apparently because she knew it is a place forever dear to his heart). She enticed him into coming to the store after church today by giving him a Highland Gift Certificate for his birthday. The rest is now history. Best wishes to the happy couple!
