In Memory of Bill Charles

Bill was quite a man and quite a volunteer. I'll always admire his dedication, positive attitude, and willingness to quietly solve problems and fix things. He was so passionate about the Mount Baker Theatre's Organ. He spent countless hours working away on stage and up in the organ bays making sure the organ would work whenever we needed it. He regularly came down to the theatre to make sure the organ was good to go when we had tours or performances. He was always in a great mood and eager to share the organ with anyone who was interested.
