On what would have been Brother Charles Riley's 52nd birthday, Minister Lawrance Evans praised him for his intelligence and insight on the benefits of First Community Interfaith Institute. He performed his responsibilities more on a member basis than a supporter. He never applied to be a member. He realized early on during his almost 20 year affiliation with the Institute that time is more important than money. A quiet warrior who was a devoted volunteer tutor, he is credited for two of our current fundraisers: our penny drive and our bottle campaign.
