Memories of the first kiss at China Beach

Editor: I am writing in response to the demolition of the former nightclub China Beach (The Times, July 29).

I would like to tell you our story, as it’s a good memory of the former nightclub. It was July 1991. I was out at China Beach with a few girlfriends, dancing the night away to the band Trooper.

A guy I hadn’t really met before, but knew of through other people, asked me to dance. It was a slow one. I said sure. We danced. The song ended, he looked into my eyes, I looked into his, and we kissed.

There is such a thing as love at first sight. We felt it and we saw the fireworks.We went our separate ways that evening, only to reconnect that December. We have been together ever since.

He asked me to marry him two years later. In June, 1994, we were married. We just celebrated our 20th anniversary. Reading the story about the fall of the former nightclub with the “storied” past made us reminisce about our first kiss.Thank you for that.

Karen and Gord Perrin,

Langley
