The Canadian Progress Club Halifax Cornwallis Charitable Foundation (CPC Halifax Cornwallis) is a committed group of volunteer women totally focused on helping those in need in our community since 1988. The Halifax Cornwallis chapter is one of the most active and successful Progress Clubs in Canada. We are proud to support Phoenix, HomeBridge Youth Society, Adsum House and Nova Scotia Special Olympics locally, and Canadian Special Olympics nationally.
This past weekend was the annual Progress Club Regional Convention. The Pictou County Progress Club hosted a wonderful weekend at the Pictou Lodge on the north shore of Nova Scotia full of education, the business of progress and fellowship. During our Annual General Meeting, the annual regional awards were handed out. The CPC Halifax Cornwallis was thrilled to tie for the “Presidents Award” (Regional Club of the Year) with our Brother Club CPC Halifax. Both clubs worked hard this year to give back to the community in which we live. Many charities benefited not only from our fundraising but also our volunteer efforts. The region, which consists of 8 clubs and 267 people volunteered over 4,100 hours and raised over $600,000. Congratulations to all the clubs in the region and here is to another great year to come serving our communities.
