History:
The Ladies Auxiliary to the Calgary Post Office Employees was organized in Calgary, Alberta in 1951 by Jessie Jones, to aid the CPOE in fund raising and to help host a national convention planned for Calgary in 1953. The group raised money through raffles, bake sales, bingo games and bazaars. The funds were used primarily to supply scholarships for children of employees and to aid local charitable organizations. In 1953, when CPOE became the Calgary Postal Employees, the Ladies Auxiliary also changed its name. At this time the group received its charter. During the 1970s membership declined, many of the fund raising activities were curtailed, and the group became more of a social club.
