BANGOR – Elissa Anne Megquier and Israel John Sawyer, both of Bangor, are excited to announce their engagement and marriage plans for Aug. 23, 2009. Elissa is the daughter of Ronald and Pamela Megquier and Israel is the son of James and Debralee Sawyer. Elissa and Israel met through Debra, who Elissa works with at a local day care. Israel and Elissa would have nothing to do with one another, but throughout a summer of running into one another, they decided to give it a shot. After a year of being together and Israel being over for dinner every night for Pam’s cooking, he asked Pam and Ron, and then made it official by proposing at Fairmount Park at a family end-of-summer picnic. This one’s forever and will be held at Essex Street Baptist Chuch. All who know Elissa and Irael have touched their lives in some way, shape or form and they want to thank all of you for your love and support.
