Fairlie Dickinson

It is with deepest and saddest regret that I have to inform the association members of the passing of one of our dearest friends and past member:

Fairlie Dickinson

Fairlie's passing has come as a shock to us all, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time, particularly to his wife and children, especially David as a member of council and the association.  We will, of course, in due time inform the membership of any arrangements that are made by the family.
