A Holiday Proposal

Written by Joanne Williams, program developer at Whitewater Canal State Historic Site

Ivan & Christa at Whitewater Canal

 The Ben Franklin III Canal Boat and Metamora Grist Mill, along with the town of Metamora, were decorated to the hilt for the annual Christmas Walk on Friday, Dec. 4. Deb Alvey, Whitewater Canal State Historic Site office manager and official photographer, was out taking pictures of the town and historic site for the marketing department when she came across a very romantic and life-changing event. Romance must have been in the air because visitor Ivan Cole took the opportunity to propose to Christa Turner on the bridge over the Whitewater Canal. The happy and excited couple asked Deb to capture this warm moment for them on her camera.

We aren’t sure how many times this has happened at the Whitewater Canal State Historic Site, but we are sure glad that Deb was there to help the young people remember this important event in their lives. Congratulations to Ivan and Christa and we hope they have many happy years together!

  1. Hi. Looking arround your site, I was interested to se the Officers uniform manufactured in 1943 by C&M Sumrie Ltd.
    I was trained there as a tailor from 1950.
    The Head Office was in Argyle Street, London but the garment was probably made in their workrooms in Leeds, West Yorkshire.
    I worked in the Ladies department making very high quality ladies coats and suits, and uniforms for BOAC and BEA airlines flight attendants.
    Golden Grade was high quality menswear, Suits and dresswear.
