Charlie Bulmer's 90th Birthday

July 18, 2022

The amazing and energetic Charlie Bulmer of CC Marine Distributors celebrated his 90th Birthday on July 13th with a Barbeque lunch for all his employees.

The company, originally founded in 1932 by Charlie’s father Currey Bulmer, has steadily grown and prospered. Today, CC Marine Distributors totally fills their 31,000 square foot facility in Newmarket, Ontario and their staff are always busy but cheerful and accommodating for all their customers. Charlie is usually there in person and can always find time to greet his friends!

The 90th Birthday Party BBQ was held at their Harry Walker Parkway address. In the photo (above) we see Charlie in the centre, on his left is his daughter Kelly Bulmer and right is Charlie’s wife Christine Bulmer, posing for the photo.

It was a wonderful and warm-hearted celebration for a very special person. At the conclusion of the celebration, an ice cream truck arrived and Charlie bought everyone anything they wanted from the truck.

On behalf of the marine industry and your many friends, Happy Birthday Charlie!
