The Royal Purple of Canada was founded on September 11, 1914 and was incorporated under a special Dominion of Canada Charter with the Elks of Canada.  The first lodge was set up in Vancouver, B.C.  Working diligently to develop the organization across Canada, Alice Morrow became the first Supreme Honoured Lady (National President).

Since inception, the Royal Purple of Canada has grown to over 200 Lodges and 7,000 Members.  Membership means you will receive a warm welcome when visiting any Lodge, a network of friends that you can tap into anywhere in Canada.  Extending this network further is our partner Organization, The Elks of Canada.

The members of the Stavely Royal Purple Elk Lodge #99 are focused primarily on the promotion and support of community needs through local and national programs.  Our objective is to support our communities with donations made to a variety of organizations or groups in need of financial assistance.  Our two main fundraisers for the year are the Lobsterfest in June and The Christmas Market in November. 

We are continually seeking new members to bring fresh ideas and increase our ability to support the communities of Nanton, Stavely and Claresholm.  You are welcome to join us at a meeting.

Meetings are held every second Wednesday of the month September through June at the Stavely Community Hall, time: 7:00 p.m.  Alternating months a social evening with dinner is enjoyed by all.
