Chatsworth Country Club

In July, 1947, several women in the Vermillion, Alberta area invited local women to the home of Myrtle Thompson, with the idea of starting a ladies club. The 13 women who attended decided to form a club, calling it the Chatsworth Country Club (or CCC) after the name of the local school. Over the years, membership has ranged from a low of nine to a high of twenty three.

The Club holds Christmas parties at member's homes every December and sponsors an annual summer picnic. Besides monthly visiting and birthday cakes for members, the Club has contributed to many causes. After World War II, food packages were shipped to war-torn Europe. They sponsored a child through the Canadian Save the Children Fund, and also did fund raising and made donations to the Red Cross, MS Society, Arthritic Society, Cancer Society and others. They contributed handmade quilts and other handmade items to local nursing homes and organizations as well as making dolls for Santa's Anonymous and slippers and mitts for Ronald McDonald House.
