Michelle Anhorn is quick to offer help to sports teams in Airdrie.
As a mother to three in various leagues, she says it’s important to give back.
“Somebody has to in all reality. Somebody has to help otherwise these kids wouldn’t have a good experience playing sports, but I enjoy it,” Anhorn says.
“I enjoy giving back to the kids and people of the associations.”
Anhorn sits on the board for the Rockyview Lacrosse Association and the Airdrie Minor Hockey Association (AMHA) as tournament coordinator and equipment coordination.
She works tirelessly moving hockey coaching tools like bumpers, nets and jerseys from rink to rink. Each season, she spends four weekends at the arena for tournaments – working countless hours to organize, schedule and gather prizes.
Nominator Cindy Kunitz works hand in hand with Anhorn at the AMHA. She says Anhorn volunteers her time doing difficult tasks with no complaints.
“I have never been around Michelle when she isn’t smiling and making everyone around her feel happy and special,” says Kunitz.
“She brings coffee to the office and sometimes lunch or little gifts to brighten our day.”
