Love at first sight at the YMCA
Eharmony eat your heart out. Hollister YMCA’s SilverSneaker fitness class turned out a heart smart choice for two local seniors in more ways than one. On the first day of class, Janice Harl took one look at fellow class attendee Chris Farell and her heartbeat did a few extra repetitions. “She came over that first day and asked me if I wanted to go to Silver Dollar City with her,” Farell said. He wasted no time in saying “yes.” That was in May. That first date began a fast-track to love.
The SilverSneaker class hosted an engagement reception for the couple - after the exercise class, of course. The two were married on Oct., 31. “It’s a match made in heaven,” Farell said. Farell retired as the North American Sales Director for Haldex and lives in Ridgedale. Harl, a cosmetologist, lives in Hollister.
