Our 52nd year of service

Our Clubhouse in Grand Bend

The Algarva Caravan 168 of the International Order of The Alhambra is a Catholic charities organization dedicated to serving the needs of the developmentally challenged people in Huron, Lambton and Middlesex Counties in Southwestern Ontario Canada.

This caravan has been operating from a clubhouse on Klondyke Rd., Grand Bend, ONTARIO for the past 50 years.

In the pages of this site you will find our upcoming events, news about our Order and other interesting things.  Visitors should keep coming back to this site to keep abreast of our latest activities.

To fund these activities plus provide aid to other agencies, schools and individuals we run a number of fundraising events.  Some of these are:

  • a Golf Tournament held in Northville at Sand Hills Golf Centre each July,


  • a Cash Draw Elimination Dance each November,
  • a New Year's Cheer Raffle, and
  • donations by individuals who want to help our work


Two years ago  we celebrated Canada's 150th Birthday at our Fun Day.  Here are a few pictures.
