Brian Ramos ’07 wanted to plan the perfect Valentine’s Day date this year. So, he and 15 of his friends asked 16 women from Messiah Village, a nearby retirement community, to join them for a special Valentine’s Day date at the Italian Oven in Mechanicsburg, Pa.
The gentleman arrived with a pink and red rose for each woman. “The number-one reason I did this was I wanted to do something in the community to help someone else out,” Ryan Pereus ’07 told Harrisburg’s Patriot-News
in a February 15 article. “Number two, I’m a single man,” he laughed. “Number three, I just wanted to have a good time.”
