“Visualize the ladies meeting in their long dresses, petticoats, tightly corseted”, the first members of our Club 110 years ago!

At our 110th Anniversary celebration, Ruth Hilland also reminded us that “apparently Bob Edwards of the Calgary Eye Opener newspaper took great delight in making disparaging remarks about the ‘literary ladies’. Of course those were the heady days of the wild and woolly west, with a bar and brothel on every street corner. And maybe our ladies were a little straight-laced — but God bless them every one!”

Please check Our History (tab above), provided by Ruth Hilland (long-time member, Past President and currently focused on New Members). To quote Ruth: “May we carry on for at least another hundred years!”
