Charlie Park - Director (2013 - 2017)
Charlie Park trained as a professional engineer in the United Kingdom and immigrated to British Columbia in 1965. He spent most of his working life designing and constructing facilities for the transmission and distribution of natural gas in BC. Since retirement, Charlie has volunteered for many organizations in the Pender Harbour area, including the Garden Bay Waterworks District, Power Squadron, Lions Club, Music Society, Garden Bay Sailing Club, and the Pipe Band. Charlie’s engineering background has proven invaluable in the completion of numerous projects undertaken by the Society.
