So sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. He was always interested in what was happening here at the Lodge in Hanover of which he was a Past Master. He often sent emails of support and encouragement. We treasured his continued membership. A donation will be made to the Masonic Foundation of Ontario in his memory. Please accept our sincere condolences.
