Nominate An Airdrie Volunteer

 

Time is running out if you plan to nominate a local individual, business, or organization for the 2014 Airdrie Volunteer of the Year Awards. While the awards are not held until May, nominations need to be made by March 28th.

 

We Q & A with City of Airdrie Community Developer, Robbie White for all the details.

 

What is the background behind the Volunteer Of The Year Awards?

The awards were started about eight years ago by the City of Airdrie, to recognize volunteers in the community. When they started it was just the one award, the Volunteer of the Year Award. A few years ago we expanded it to include four different categories, to really encapsulate the various types of volunteers we have in the community.

What are the Various Award Categories?

The first is the Soul of Airdrie Award which is the Volunteer of the Year Award. The Leader of Tomorrow Award is for youth in the community age 11 – 18. The Volunteer Advocate is for a non profit organization, committee or some sort of group and finally we have the Ambassador Award for a local business or proprietor.

How can residents go about nominating an individual, organization, or business?

The nominations are all done online, but if people are not comfortable with that, we can certainly guide them through it, but it’s pretty user friendly. There’s a form to fill out and also if you’re giving a letter of support for somebody, it’s also done online. Nominate a volunteer here

What do you love about Airdrie?

I’m not just saying this because you’re interviewing me for the Volunteer Awards, but there really is an attitude or philosophy with people in Airdrie to give back in some way, or be involved in some way. Wheather it’s volunteering in their kids class at school, or helping out with their hockey team, or not for profit. Everyone seems to do something to give back to the community.

BGC Airdrie Pink And Paper Shirts

 

Pink T-Shirt Day is quickly approaching and if you didn’t happen to pre-order the newly designed Tee, don’t fret. In this Episode we chat with Marie, from the Airdrie Boy’s and Girl’s Club about Pink T-Shirt Day, how you can still get your Pink T-Shirt and how Airdrie businesses can get involved with the club’s Paper T-Shirt campaign.

Q & A With Marie:

Marie, can you share a little about Pink T-Shirt Day, for our viewers who may not be familiar with it?

Pink Shirt Day started on the East Cost. A boy had moved to a new school and was bullied for wearing a pink shirt, being called gay and other words that would go along with that. A bunch of seniors heard what was going on and decided they weren’t going to stand for that in their school. The next day they brought in a whole bunch of pink shirts and the whole school showed their support for this boy who had been picked on. It’s grown and grown from there, so the idea is to where a pink shirt to your school and to show your support to end bullying in your school.

Pre-sales for the newly designed shirts has wrapped up. How can the public still go about getting one?

 Contact us on February 19th when they will have all arrived. At that point we will be selling to the public who haven’t  pre-ordered. The will be $10.00.

What is the Paper T-Shirt Campaign and how can Airdrie businesses get involved with it?

 We have paper T-Shirts for sale that are $2.00 each, in various businesses throughout Airdrie, to help raise support for ending bullying in Airdrie. If your business would like to get involved, just contact the Centre and we can help them get set up with that. 403-948-3331.

What do you love about Airdrie?

 I love what a community feel Airdrie has. I’m new to the city and ever since I moved here, I felt like i’m part of things and I love the support that it gives to it’s various causes.

Pink Shirt Day happens on February 26, 2014. There will be a Pink Party held at The Airdrie Boy’s and Girl’s Club Centre, with special guests, speakers and entertainment. Look for more Pink Shirt Day information from Airdrie 360, in the weeks to come. To get your own pink shirt, or to get involved with the paper shirt campaign, please call the Centre at 403-948-3331.

Airdrie Transit Route 4

 

Airdrie Transit Route 4 is your Airdrie to CrossIron Mills Connection. Airdrie Transit Coordinator, Chris MacIsaac, gives us all the details on the launch of their latest route.

Q & A

Airdrie Transit recently launched Route 4, Airdrie to CrossIron Mills Mall. Can you share some of the details on it?

Route 4 is our new service that operates from Airdrie to Crossiron Mills on weekends and statutory holidays. It was born out of the need to have more transportation options to and from the mall.

What type of customer do you see really benefitting from Route 4?

We see three groups of customers that will be using the service from day one: Students that would like to have the option to get away from their parents taxi to get to the mall, seniors who love to have recreational time outside of their home, the general public who have been asking for the service. We’re happy we can provide that.

As far as fares, scheduling and stops go, where can we get that information?

If your looking for information on fares and schedules, the best place to find that information is on our website www.airdrietransit.ca

airdrielife 360: Sarah Ferguson Fall 2013

 

Sarah Ferguson is a true Airdrie talent. A natural actress since an early age (just ask her mom), Sarah took 10 years of dance, musical theatre, jazz and hip hop in Airdrie. She was involved in Airdrie’s Kids on Broadway and taught the program for two years. She graduated from St. Martin De Porres in 2010 and is a recent graduate of Mount Royal University’s theatre performance program, having appeared in Scenes from an American Life, Man of the North, A Prairie Boy’s Winter and The Rocky Horror Show

Sarah starts her next chapter this fall at Simon Fraser University, where she plans to obtain a bachelor of fine arts degree in theatre performance. Parents of little ones who attended The Little Gym were crushed to learn that Sarah is leaving to pursue school in B.C., as she is incredibly well-loved by the children and famous for her love of costumes, making Halloween a whole month of fun.

Vancouver’s gain is definitely Airdrie’s loss. Break a leg, Sarah!
