Happy 100th Birthday to Sister Charlotte Lockhart!

Sister Charlotte celebrated on Thursday, September 17, with the residents at Windsor Court in Fredericton, NB. Outsiders were not permitted to join her for the festive afternoon tea. A few friends gathered outside, on the back patio, to greet Sister in the early evening, after supper. Charlotte enjoyed her special day. She is grateful for the cards and good wishes she received. Someday, after COVID-19, we may be able to have a real party, a big one, to properly mark today’s milestone.
