Hello Community,

Join us for the Celebration of Life for Charles Crossland at the Mansons Hall, November 2nd from 6-10pm.

We are very fortunate to know Charles. The Celebration of Life is an opportunity to gather and share cherished memories of our time with him.

We begin with a potluck at 6pm. Please bring a dish to share. A few of Charles' favourite foods to explore.

Celebrating our friend in story, poem, song and dance will follow. If you'd like to perform a favourite song that speaks to his life, please contact Mateo (

We are happy to say that Charles' parents Josée and Robert will be joining us for the evening. Lisa Day will have a very special scrapbook for them available for you to write or paste in thoughts, feelings, memories, poems and photos.

We will co-create a memorial outside the Co-op out of colourful painted beach rocks, personalized with symbols and messages for our beloved Charles. So we are asking you to pre-paint or decorate your rock and bring it with you to the event. We will parade them down from the Hall to the Co-op.

Jen Stevens has kindly offered her home (Potlatch Rd) and art supplies for rock painting sessions Sat/Sun October 26/27 from 2-4pm. If you have paint supplies please bring them along. (

The music will get your feet moving, as the evening flows into dance. Watch, listen, move as you remember Charles.

Willing to host travellers for the night, please contact Edward (

We hope you will join us in celebrating Charles' life and how you have been touched by his presence.
