Covid-19 Closures

The May Court Club is now closed until further notice. As a result, all scheduled meetings and activities are cancelled. A few upcoming events are now listed on the Member Activities page.

Thank you for your patience and understanding in this uncertain time.

Lady Aberdeen Tea

The May Court Club of Ottawa now has its own brand tea blend!  Lady Aberdeen Tea is a blend of black and green teas with cornflowers, jasmine and natural flavours.  The tea tins which make 30 cups of tea have our own May Court label and are available to purchase for $15.00. As well as being delicious, it makes a wonderful gift.

Member Activities

Tailgate Sales

The Aberdeen Artisans Committee will hold a ‘Mini-Mini-Tailgate Sale’ for May Court members and friends on Wednesdays in October and November 2020, in conjunction with the mask sales!  Emails will be sent out to members each week listing the featured items.

Past Events

The Annual General Meeting for the May Court Club of Ottawa was held via Zoom on Wednesday, September 9th.  The technology worked very well, and the business of the meeting was concluded, and the new Board of Directors is in place.

On Wednesday, August 12, 2020 the Aberdeen Artisans held a very successful Tailgate Sale in the parking lot of the Clubhouse. It was a beautiful day, the turnout was great, and we added much-needed funds to the coffers of The May Court. Many, many thanks to those who helped out, and those who attended!

The St. Patrick’s Day Bridge Luncheon was held on Thursday, March 12, 2020, and enjoyed by all.

The Spring General Meeting and Luncheon was held on Wednesday, March 4, 2020.
