CC Marine Distributors’ Charlie Bulmer Celebrates 80th Birthday

With his family, his CC Marine Distributors family and a large group of friends and business associates, Charlie Bulmer celebrated his 80th birthday on Friday, July 13.

Charlie continues to work on the business every day and puts in the same kind of effort he always has in support of his customers and the many suppliers to CC Marine Distributors. The turnout at the 80th birthday party was tremendous and predictable.

Friends came from far and wide to offer their congratulations and best wishes as well as gifts ranging from the humorous to the historic including a pair of fully restored vintage outboard engines for display in the CC Marine Distributors offices.

Charlie might be 80 but you would never know it. In addition to delivering a heartfelt thank you speech to all his guests, Charlie actually went after a piñata while blindfolded and even took a cream pie in the face!

On behalf of all your friends and associates at Boating Industry Canada magazine and (we are confident), the entire Canadian marine industry; congratulations on this special occasion. Happy 80th Birthday Charlie!
