Welcome to Bathurst Council #827!

About Us

Our motto is "People Helping People" and reflects our commitment to the community and its members. 

Fraternal and social balance of activities include curling on Sunday mornings from October to April. A Senior councilor's banquet and ball (where “Roses for the Living” and other awards are presented), a lobster supper and a bowling tournament are normally followed by a meal and dance. A local golf tournament is held in the fall. Activities are normally well attended, frequently with other invited councils and guests. The success of activities is mainly because of our large membership. Some people say they do not have time to work at UCT but their dedication, as members, is important to us to accomplish this very important purpose of a fraternal organization.


Membership has increased rapidly over the years, but the present 642 was once 836. Retention is still the #1 concern. We have come a long way since the 40 members in the late 50's.

The first councils century writer was Rene Beaudet when he signed up 66 members during the 1978-79 term and earned the title of #1 writer in Atlantic Grand and the council, #1 in Supreme.

Rudolph Doucet remains the #1 writer in all of the Supreme domain by writing 227 fraternal members in 1980-81, and again made the council #1 in Supreme. Rudy has written over 500 members to date.
