With the December holidays now behind us, it is time to look ahead to a new year and new celebrations. This time, we’re honoring Saint Valentine – that mischief-maker who encourages thoughts of love, hand-holding, chocolate, and roses on February 14.
We are looking for stories of romance to share on our blog. Has Cupid ever struck you at South Station? (Check out the photo from South Station circa 1971, left, courtesy Dan Brody). Perhaps you met your special someone while waiting for the next train. Or do you recall tireless nights of traveling through the station to reach your final destination, the arms of your sweetheart? Do you know anyone who has ever popped the question nearby?
In the true spirit of Saint Valentine, share your story and spread the LOVE. Please email Kate Fichter at Katherine.firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, January 31. We look forward to hearing from you! Please write only if you want to share your story with our South Station friends.
