Britt Thorpe and Calin Schell announced their engagement on Friday September 12. Calin proposed to her on top of Blanchard Mt. where he got down on one knee with the words "marry me" spelled out in roses next to him. The prospective bride is the daughter of Sonja and Michael Thorpe of Bellingham. She is expected to graduate from WWU in the spring with a degree in Exercise & Sport Science. The prospective bridegroom is the son of Kara and Harold Schell of Chelan, WA. He also expects to graduate in the spring with a degree in Manufacturing Engin- eering Technology. Calin and Britt anticipate a July 2009 wedding in Chelan. They then plan to move abroad and will return later to attend graduate school. They couldn't be happier!!
