There’s no finer place to pay tribute to Airdrie’s veterans than Veteran’s Boulevard.

On Saturday, Oct 31 at 11 a.m. Airdrie will remember those who have served, those who are still serving and those who have fallen in the fourth annual ceremony on the median of Veteran’s Boulevard.  The cross erection ritual will take place on the west side of the Main Street junction.

The communities of Sunridge and Stonegate flank each side of this intersection.

Organizers will place 25 crosses, all bearing the name, birthdate, rank and date of death of an Airdrie soldier killed in the line of duty if applicable, on Veteran’s Boulevard.  An honour guard will accompany the crosses, give the salute and raise the flag.

The 25 crosses will remain in place

People are still buying homes in Airdrie. 

This Alberta city, disguised as a small town, experienced a 30 per cent growth over the four year period 2009 to 2013 and analysts predict that with right conditions, it will see another 75 per cent population surge in the next 10 years or so.

Early indications were than Airdrie could grow to 90,000 people by 2040.  However, new predictions suggest that target could be hit by 2027.

Airdrie city councilors don’t want to discourage growth, because new populations widen the tax base.  But one of the city’s charms is its small town vibe and Airdrie’s key stakeholders would like to keep it that way.  This desire to keep things small and friendly led to council’s development of a new sustainability plan
