CALGARY MOUNT ROYAL
Our club was established in July 2016 and follows the legacy of the CPC Calgary Eves, the first stand-alone all women’s service club in North America.
CPC Calgary Mount Royal focuses 75% of our efforts on fundraising and 25% on hands-on volunteer community service. Our passion is for women and children’s charities in both a preventative and curative capacity.
The Calgary Mount Royal emblem is two dandelions and a guardian bent over protecting a youth. This emblem represents our chapter’s commitment to give back to disadvantaged members within Calgary and area. The large dandelion represents hope and guidance for our youth while the small dandelion symbolizes a person in need.
