Organizers encourage residents to Think Airdrie
Airdrie residents are being challenged to work, play and shop at home more frequently by members of Think Airdrie, a non-profit community initiative focused on local development.
“We’re doing some really awesome stuff to really heighten the profile (of the city),” said Janice Ware, Think Airdrie coordinator.
“We want to help promote greater awareness of all that Airdrie has to offer.”
The Think Airdrie committee is calling on Airdronians to participate in the Daily Online Challenge, a quiz that will test the knowledge of residents about their city.
The questions will be posted daily on social media, and each respondent will be entered into a daily prize draw. Residents can take part in the challenge by visiting Think Airdrie’s Facebook page or following the group on Twitter.
“It’s really exciting,” said Ware.
“The business community has been phenomenal in (contributing) to the daily prizes.”
Residents will also see other activities promoted by Think Airdrie in September, including the 30-Day Checklist. Participants can pick up a checklist from City Hall, local businesses or download one at www.thinkairdrie.ca
The brochure includes a pledge to Think Airdrie and a calendar where residents can record how they shop local every day.
“At the end of the month, you can drop off those checklists,” said Ware. “We have some fabulous prizes for that.”
Ware said participants can email the completed checklist to firstname.lastname@example.org
Take the pledge
The Think Airdrie pledge is a commitment to spend time and money in Airdrie. The Think Airdrie Facebook page will also have a spot for residents to submit photos and videos that speak to their love of the city. All submissions will be entered into a draw for a grand prize, yet to be announced.
“We really want to help promote greater awareness (for residents and businesses),” said Ware. “It’s a win-win situation for everyone.”
