She said yes! Chris Ricks recently proposed to Shawn Knauts, GMLC 2013 and a current member of the GMLF Board of Directors.  Chris surprised Shawn with a sunset proposal on April  21 on the bluffs over-looking the Missouri River at Les Bourgeois Winery.  Chris made all the arrangements in advance working with staff at the winery.  In addition, he included his son in the surprise, Adam, and a few close friends; including Amy Schneider (current GMLF Board member) and Suzanne Rothwell (a GMLF Advisor).  Amy and Suzanne were waiting nearby to capture the entire event on video and then celebrated with them (while also social distancing).

The happy couple are planning a July wedding ceremony with friends and family.

Chris is the Director of Marketing at Shelter Insurance and Shawn is the Vice President of Claims at Shelter Insurance.

We are so happy for the both of you and send our best wishes. May your joining together bring you more joy than you can imagine.

Contact Shawn to congratulate her:
