The Young Men's Christian Association or YMCA was founded by George Williams in Britain in 1844|the associated group called the Y's Men's Club began in Toledo, Ohio in 1922. Later the wives of the "Y's Men" decided to form an auxiliary group to support the community work of the Y's Men's Club and the YMCA. In 1924 a Vancouver women's group adopted the "Y's Menettes" name. The Y's Menettes association was formally accepted as part of the YMCA group at the Cleveland Convention in 1931. Y's Menettes soon became international. The Edmonton group began December 4, 1944 and was very active throughout the 1950's and 1960's.
