While the winners were announced in May, we decided to wait for our heroes issue to give them their due with, appropriately, a superhero photo shoot!
Thanks to The Store Upstairs we were able to outfit each of our recipients and representatives in technicolour costumes that really seemed to suit their own super attitudes toward making Airdrie a great place to live.
