She Met Her Husband During Rose Festival

A Dee Jay at the K103 Radio station gave me information on contacting Rose Festival with this memory.

My husband and I first met during the Rose Festival when he was serving on the U.S.S. Berkeley.

Come June 11, 2007, it will be 16 years since that first meeting -- and will also be our 14th wedding anniversary.

Here's the remarkable way we met...

I was working in an office on the eighth floor of a building in downtown Portland. I saw my future husband in the Marriot Hotel, which is across from the building I work in. We managed to catch each other's attention.

The next thing I knew I was writing my name and phone number on a piece of cardboard. The rest is history. Love stories do happen!
