Cynthia Drysdale

My husband Steve attended Royal Roads Military College. On January 30, 1988, we met at a dance at what is now the Mews. Steve said he spotted me the moment I walked in with my friend, as he was standing on the upper balcony overlooking the entrance.

We danced, talked, and laughed and at the end of the night, I gave him my phone number on a napkin written in eyeliner.

He waited in line to call me from the phone booth located in his barracks every night for a week until our first date. We attended dances and formal balls during his time there - so many wonderful events. We were married on May 12, 1990, one week before his graduation, with special permission, as cadets weren't allowed to get married.

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary this year. We have the fondest memories of our time together at Royal Roads.
