In 1935, the Brightside Club, formed in Chatham in the early 1920’s joined the Affiliated May Court Clubs of Canada, which in 1965 became the Associated May Court Clubs of Canada.  The May Court Club of Chatham recently celebrated its 80th Anniversary. During those 80 years the May Court Club of Chatham has been involved in many worthwhile projects supporting women and children in the community.
