We are the decendents of the first William Bell Charters and his wife Louisa of Sooke.

History has the record of the Charters family and their commitment to the community of Sooke and their new country Canada.

We would like to express our appreciation and thanks for the very wonderful day at the Charters Salmon Interpretive Centre.  Such hard work and dedication to a very worthwhile cause is not found often enough in todays busy culture.

Each person who saw the need for this project and so willingly spent so many volunteer hours to bring it to fruition have our heartfelt appreciation and respect.

We are awed by your investment in this ongoing project which will have a tremendous impact in the years to come.  A sincere thank you to each and everyone of you.  We had a wonderful day that will be a golden memory of all who were present there.

The Charters decendents are very grateful for a day to be long remembered.

The decendents of William Bell Charters (1824 – 1909)
