The 2018 Amazing Airdrie Women Awards were held May 11 and it truly was an amazing day of celebration for Airdrie women. Guest speaker Ally Lane enthralled the sold-out crowd sharing her personal journey through breast cancer with humour while host and publisher Sherry Shaw-Froggatt presented the awards.
Judging by the laughter, applause and abundance of hugs all around the room, it was deemed another successful wrap up for a program created in 2011.
Shaw-Froggatt says the awards were always meant not to single out any particular women, but to recognize the role of women in our community, whether it be in the home, at work, on the sidelines or on the field. “Bringing everyone together like this shows the power we have to affect change in our own community. I am honoured to showcase the stories of these women, and all women in Airdrie.” Nominations for the 2019 Amazing Airdrie Women are now open online at airdrielife.com
