Thank you, Calgary

A sincere thank you to all those Calgarians who have cheered us on and supported our efforts over the years, throughout our city's downturns, upswings, and everything in between.

We would not have survived as a service club, being able to help our community, without such generous contributions to, and enthusiastic participation in, all of our social and fundraising events.

Calgary, your Bow River spirit is very much appreciated!

Calgary Bow River is a men's service club established in 1977, and one of seven clubs in Calgary, Alberta, Canada that espouse the Aims and Objectives of the Canadian Progress Club.

Fun and fellowship are the backbone of Bow River's community service and fundraising. The club believes in this simple principle: give back to the community, help those in need, and have fun doing it.

For 40 years, members of Calgary Bow River (aka the Bow River Boys) have raised more than $5,000,000 in support of their club's designated charities.

Among those groups benefitting from the proceeds of Bow River's fundraising events is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary and Area (BBBS), which receives a significant portion of its annual revenue from the club's donations.  In addition to funding, the club contributes to the administration of BBBS programs through representation on the agency's Board of Directors and sub-committees, and through participation in the programs themselves.

The Bow River Boys have attained high honour within Progress.  Distinctions include several members who have served as National President, been awarded the coveted Progressian of the Year, and received the Western Region Bill Durrant Memorial Award for Excellence.

About the Canadian Progress Club

Founded in 1922, the Canadian Progress Club is an all-Canadian not-for-profit service club having no international affiliations.  All across the country, men's, women's, and mixed chapters of the Canadian Progress Club bring together small forces of like-minded individuals, with common-sense experience, who seek the advancement of the communities in which they live.  In particular, the clubs take pride in their contribution towards the betterment of underprivileged children, and helping to foster the cause of physically, mentally and socially challenged people of Canada through community service, in the spirit of fellowship.   (For more information please visit www.progressclub.ca.)

Meeting Times and Location

Regular supper meetings are held Tuesday evenings at 6:15 p.m.

Our former Belfry Gastro House location has closed its doors, so we are on the hunt for a new regular venue. Until then, meetings take place at various locations in downtown Calgary.

Guests are welcome, but please contact us first to find out where we're gathering this week.

How to Join

We're always on the lookout for individuals who embrace energy, enthusiasm and commitment.   We invite you to join us for one of our regular meetings to see if we make a connection. Join us for a few more meetings and we're sure you'll get into the Bow River spirit.
