origins and

history

Airdrie was named after a village northeast of Glasgow, Scotland. William McKenzie, a contracting engineer for Calgary and Edmonton Railway, named the village in 1889. The name “Airdrie” means ” The King’s Height.” A unique feature of Airdrie is that its elevation makes it the highest city in Alberta. The first inhabitants of Airdrie were railway workers of the Calgary and Edmonton Railway. These workers lived in the station house. The railway brought people to live in Airdrie. The steam-running trains would stop in town and were able to pick up water because Nose Creek remained ice free year round.

The Airdrie water was good for engines, as the alkali content was low; however, the Carstairs point was avoided if possible because of the foaming caused by alkali. In due time, all these features of the railroading ended and a new town was built. Included was a water tower, and suitable piping for transferring water underground from creek to reservoir. It is interesting to note that the high water quality of Nose Creek would bring the railway to Airdrie and subsequently more settlers. It was not until 1929 that the first Pool elevator,

This created jobs for people which in turn created a need for housing and services. In 1891 when the C&E Railway came winding up the coulee from Calgary, to take advantage of easy grades, the answer to a railroad builder’s dream opened up before surveyors’ and engineers’ eyes. Railway Station and Water Tower was in a valley a mile and a half wide, with a substantial stream winding lazily through it. Many a freight engine took on water through the years. 10

a 40,000 - bushel structure, was built in Airdrie. With the loyal support of members in the district, handlings were large and in 1939 the elevator was twinned. In August 1923, J.E. Gusts of Yankee Valley, signed marketing contract No. 1 with the Alberta Wheat Pool and within a few days, scores of farmers from this rich, grain growing area had signed up. For many years Airdrie was regarded as one of the strongest Alberta Wheat Pool points in this province. Each year, a larger share of the Guide to A irdrie and A rea

2014-2015


grain marketed in the district has gone through the facilities of this owned co-operative. Interest in the highway to Edmonton was revived with the advent of the automobile after 1900. In 1906, the first auto trip was made from Calgary to Edmonton over a decaying trail system. The new Province of Alberta was already in the midst of a fantastic wave of public works development, and the new Provincial Highway was added to the list becoming the first Highway No. 1. In rough fashion, but more respectful of the farms in its path, the first highway followed the railway to the many towns that had sprung up as sidings, section points, and grain elevator service centres. Crossfield and Airdrie both owe their existence to the railway and were two of the towns joined this way.

What a boom time it had been since the post office arrived in 1901. There had been nothing there but what the railway had built. Six to ten years later, there was a hotel, restaurant, three grocery and general stores, three blacksmith shops, a livery stable, butcher shop, drug store and country doctor. The rising ground upon which the modern town of Airdrie, Scotland was built was the actual scene of the Battle of Arderyth. Once the battle was fought, it was an important decisive engagement because it secured the independence of Strathslwyd as a kingdom for about 400 years. It is interesting to note that the name of the town had its beginnings in a fight for independence and freedom. Photos courtesy of Glenbow Archives, Nose Creek Valley Museum and Heloise Lorimer.

On the Southwest border of Airdrie, is the community of Sharp Hill. A quiet community today, but not so much one hundred twenty eight years ago. August 23, 1886 Scott & Leeson, a familiar name at this time, owned the stage that ran from Edmonton to Calgary and back. It could carry 12 passengers, their cargo and the Royal Mail. For the owners it was a profitable business. Each passenger paid $25 to go the full route one way. On this particular day, the stage driver, Pete Campbell, and his three passengers left the Dickson-Stevenson resting place near McPherson’s Coulee at about noon and continued south to Calgary on the last day of a four day journey from Edmonton. The stage had only gone about six miles when it was passing through a shallow coulee near Sharp Hill. Two highway men were awaiting the coach and had taken cover in the tall grass. As the stage approached, the two, concealed in masks made of a Union Jack, sprang out in front of the stage causing it to come to a halt. Pete Campbell suddenly found himself staring into the barrels of a Carbine and a Navy Colt revolver. The passengers were ordered to exit the stage with their hands up and the driver was forced to move the stage out of the sight of the trail. One of the robbers held a gun to the passengers as the other collected their money. They stole nearly $500 in cash, but didn’t touch the watches and other valuables. They even

returned a dollar or two to the passengers so that they weren’t left completely broke. Unhitching and mounting the stage horses, the robbers rode away while the passengers walked back to the Dickson-Stevenson resting place. Pete Campbell borrowed a team of horses from a nearby sheep ranch to locate the stolen stage horses which had been deserted about 4 miles away. After the team was hitched up again, the stage continued on to Calgary. It was later that day when the police were notified of the robbery. After hearing a description of the thieves, they began their search for their prime suspects: Charlie Lafferty and Jack Young. Two days after the robbery, a man often seen in the company of the two suspects, was murdered in Bowness, and a buck-boardwagon was stolen. Lafferty and Young were pursued by the North West Mounted Police to the Montana border, where they made good their escape. The Sharp Hill Robbery was the only stage coach robbery ever recorded in Alberta’s history.

Airdrie Goes a Little Greener in 2014 In April,2014, residents in Airdrie began recycling organic material through a curb side organics recycling program.

Airdrie is one of the first communities in Southern Alberta to implement an organics recycling program, but there are a number of communities in Northern Alberta and many, many communities across Canada that are already recycling organics.

The decision to recycle organics is a critical step in achieving Airdrie City Council’s priorities of reducing waste and being fiscally responsible. Why recycle organics? • It is better for the environment: it turns material that is currently being wasted into a new, useable and valuable product, it saves valuable landfill space, and reduces greenhouse gases organics generate in the landfill. • It makes a big impact: just over half of the average residential garbage is made up of organic material. • Disposal costs are less: disposal costs for organics are 50 per cent less than disposal costs at a landfill

The City of Airdrie has developed a sister city relationship with the City of Gwacheon Korea since 1997. The sister city relationship started with the intent to provide opportunities for Airdrie residents to share cultural experiences, develop friendships and explore economic opportunities for local businesses with the City of Gwacheon.

and symbolizes the strength and endurance of our sisterhood. The butterfly symbol of the City of Gwacheon was used for the central flower beds, the flag poles and the sitting area. The sisterhood agreement has greatly enriched the communities of Gwacheon and Airdrie with the continued friendship and understanding between our diverse cultures.

Since 2012, the Rocky View School Division has been coordinating the Gwacheon Home stay Program for visiting Gwacheon students. If you or someone you know might be interested in hosting a visiting student please contact the International Education Department at the Rocky View School Division.

In 2007, six handcrafted totem poles were donated to the City of Airdrie by Gwacheon, Korea to commemorate the 10th year of sharing a sister city relationship. Airdrie residents are welcome to view the totem poles in Gwacheon Park in Airdrie year round.

As our relationship grows and flourishes, so will Gwacheon Park. The stone anchoring the Korean arch and holding the plaque are made of sandstone, which is the foundation of our city guidetoairdrie.com

The City of Airdrie also has a twinning and Sister City Policy. This policy allows members of the Council the ability to manage future requests to be partnered with other communities. 29


Nose Creek Park Nose Creek Park, in the centre of Airdrie, is a great place for a variety of recreational activities, whether it be walking or cycling the 3,350 meters of paved pathway system or playing in the playgrounds with your children. With a beautiful pond, amphitheatre, picnic shelter, fire pit*, concession and washrooms, this park is the perfect place to take in one of the several special community events that take place here throughout the year, or spend a relaxing afternoon with a picnic lunch.

Kelly & Christine Jacobson THE POWER OF TWO WORKING FOR YOU

Nose Creek Pond, in the centre of the park, is a wonderful area in which to spend time in any season. As you stroll around the pond on a warm day, you can watch the fountain spray a mist over the water. You might be lucky enough to catch sight of various types of wildlife, such as a muskrat, beaver, rabbit, heron, ducks or various songbirds. Natural areas in the park promote the growth of native shrubs and grasses which attract these animals and birds. Skate on the pond in the winter under the lights, and warm up around the fire in the fire pit*. This is a great time for family, or a romantic way to spend a winter evening. Whether you are a resident of Airdrie or a visitor to our city, please enjoy this beautiful park in all seasons of the year! * The fire pit must be booked through Parks and insurance is required

There are two theories about how Nose Creek was named: The first theory is that the Nose Creek area is shaped like a nose. The second theory is that it was a punishment for a very serious crime in the Native American cultures around the area to cut off the offender’s nose.

11th Annual City Wide Garage Sale May 23rd, 24th and 25th

City Wide Take It or Leave It May 23rd, 24th and 25th

This annual event has residents throughout the City of Airdrie coordinating garage sales in a single weekend. It is marketed not only in Airdrie itself, but in surrounding towns as well as in Calgary. People come from miles around to take advantage of great deals on good used items. Residents in Airdrie are encouraged to team up with neighbours to host multifamily garage sales as well. If you are hosting a garage sale the weekend of May 23rd – 25th , you can advertise your sales location for free by calling 403-9485529 no later than May 14th.

If residents don’t want to have a garage sale, but would like to rid themselves of good used items that may be cluttering up their household, they are encouraged to leave the unwanted items on their front lawn with a sign that says “Free to Take”. Other residents and visitors can tour the streets and view the items. If it is something they can use, they may take it. If it is not something of use to them, they can leave it for someone else. It’s a great way to rid yourself of unwanted household items while helping out someone else that may be able to put them to good use. Be sure to bring unwanted items back in after the sale is over as the City of Airdrie will not be picking up what is left.

Every Canada Day, in conjunction with the City of Airdrie, local volunteers put together a fantastic parade to mark Canada Day. Parade Presented by Davis Chevrolet This parade starts at 10 am is filled with local and national entries. There are floats, bands, horses, antique cars and more - making it a great time for everyone. It’s a treat for the whole family to sit on the curb and see the creativity of the entries, the beautifully decorated horses, the antique cars, businesses and, of course, the community groups!! There are candies and treats thrown out to the crowd courtesy of the parade participants. The parade is lots of fun, you don’t want to miss it!

Later that night, the Parade & Fireworks Committee and partners present Canada Day Fireworks in Ed Eggerer Park. Bring your blanket or chair, family and friends. The Fireworks will commence shortly at dusk. It’s a sure-fire way to kick summer off with a bang! Come early for a family dance and stay late for the fireworks.

Fruit. If you are looking for non processed, fresh ingredients, this is the market for you! After you have picked up your fresh food items, you can take your time browsing the many handmade crafts, art, blankets, jewellery, clothing, quilts, kitchen items, purses, as well as our unique vendors who bring in cruise wear, sheets, and unique hard-to-find items. For the past 5 years the Airdrie Market has raised thousands for the food bank and other charities through our many exciting events. The Airdrie Farmers Market has become Southern Alberta’s Largest outdoor weekday market! The Market Runs Wednesdays from 3:30-7 pm starting June 4th - Thanksgiving. We are now located at the Airdrie Plainsmen Arena in The Village. This year we will see over 60 different vendors every week. The variety of product and choices at this market is quite the site to behold. You can get anything from your Fresh Alberta Grown Produce, to delicious and juicy B.C 56

Welcome,

As MLA, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone to our wonderful City of Airdrie, host of the 2014 Alberta Summer Games. These games serve as a powerful reminder of the importance of active living and lifelong fitness. They also give athletes the opportunity to compete and strive for personal excellence and achievement, and provide everyone involved an incredible opportunity to build lasting friendships and memories. I commend the organizers and many volunteers who have worked tirelessly to make this event possible and invite all athletes, fans, family and friends to take in and experience all the games have to offer. Thanks for visiting Airdrie and have a great Summer Games! Sincerely, Rob Anderson MLA, Airdrie

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2014 Alberta Summer Games here in Airdrie.

As a long time resident of this community, I encourage the 2,800 participants and all others in attendance at these games to spend time in our community - visit some of the many great restaurants and shops, enjoy the parks, pathways and green spaces, and experience the warmth and friendliness of our residents. Events like the Alberta Summer Games not only help build Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation for excellence in competition but promote the many benefits of sport, encouraging children and youth of all ages and backgrounds to lead healthier and more active lives. On behalf of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Government of Canada, I want to thank the organizers and many volunteers hosting this wonderful event, as well as the numerous coaches and administrators who make this competition possible for these outstanding young athletes. Your efforts contribute to healthier lives, build stronger communities, encourage social interaction, and promote Canadian values. Sincerely, Blake Richards Member of Parliament

ATHLETICS

This is a collection of sport events which can roughly be divided into running, jumping, and throwing. This event incorporates both individual and team success.

BASEBALL

Either the Alberta Summer Games or the Alberta Zone Championships for the Sport of Baseball in Alberta are held every year. This is the beginning of the high performance system at the provincial level. All 8 athletic zones are represented. Representation crosses all of the Alberta Amateur Baseball Council membership. This means no matter which league affiliation coaches and athletes play under they are eligible to compete for their zone upon successfully being selected to the Zone team. The AABC membership includes: Baseball Alberta, Little League Alberta, American Legion Baseball, or Babe Ruth Baseball. This 15 and Under Championship also is where the AABC selects the 15 and Under Prospect Team to compete against Team Saskatchewan and Team Manitoba at the Prospect Series on the September long weekend. All of our selections begin with the Talent Identification schedule. This is comprised of 14 tryout dates around the province every spring. For more information about coaching opportunities and Team Alberta please visit www.albertabaseball.org.

BASKETBALL

At the 2014 Games, basketball is a sport played by two teams of five players on a rectangular court during a game consisting of four (4) 10 minute long quarters. The objective is to shoot a ball through a hoop 18 inches (46 cm) in diameter and 10 feet (3.0 m) high mounted to a backboard at each end. A team can score a field goal by shooting the ball through the basket during regular play. A field goal scores two points for the shooting team if a player is touching or closer to the basket than the three-point line, and three points (known commonly as a 3 pointer or three) if the player is behind the three-point line. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins, but additional time (overtime) may be issued when the game ends with a draw. The ball can be advanced on the court by bouncing it while walking or running or throwing it to a team mate. It is a violation to move without dribbling the ball, to carry it, or to hold the ball with both hands then resume dribbling. guidetoairdrie.com

71


CANOE/KAYAK

This is a boat incorporated sport that includes Slalom which requires the athlete to maneuver through a course of hanging gates in rapids; Wild water Canoeing which requires the athlete to race down a white water course using strategic in-sight to balance power and speed; Canoe Polo combines canoeing and ball handling skills along with a contact team game.

CYCLING - BMX

BMX racing is a type of off-road bicycle racing. BMX races are sprint races on custom built tracks consisting of a starting gate for up to eight racers, a groomed, serpentine, dirt race course made of various jumps and rollers and a finish line. The sport is very family oriented and largely participant-driven, with riders ranging in age from 2 to 70, and over. Professional ranks exist for both men and women, where the age ranges from 19 to 40 years old. BMX became an approved Summer Olympic sport in 2008.

CYCLING - MOUNTAIN BIKE

The Mountain Bike cycling event is a mass start competition that maybe contested on a circuit or as a point to point race.

FOOTBALL

A team ball game played between two teams of 11 players in which goals are scored when a team reaches the opposing team’s end zone with the ball. Teams are also given a different opportunity to score by kicking the ball through the gridiron bar at the opposing team’s end zone. The sport also incorporates tackling which is to prevent the offensive team to reach their end zone.

LACROSSE

Lacrosse has played a significant role in the community and religious lives of the Native People of North America since the 1840’s. Box Lacrosse is uniquely a Canadian game that is best described as a game of speed and reaction. It was re-confirmed by Parliament as the National (Summer) Sport of Canada in 1994.

RUGBY

This is a full contact team sport played by two teams of seven players where the players rely on speed, strength, and strategy to maneuver the ball into their opponent’s territory to reach for the opponent’s end zone.

72

Guide to A irdrie and A rea

2014-2015


SOCCER

Soccer is a team ball sport played by two teams of eleven players in which goals are scored by kicking or heading the ball into the opponent’s netted goal. The ball is passed between players by kicking it. The ball may not be touched by the players’ hands or arms excluding the goalkeepers.

SWIMMING

For three days, 224 athletes will be competing in 18 events and 2 relays. The swimmers will be competing in all the Olympic events and representing their zone like the athletes represent their country at the Olympics. This is a stepping stone to qualifying for the Canadian Summer Games which is the stepping stone for qualifying for the Olympics. Each event tries to mirror the Olympics as closely as possible for the experience needed to perform well at all levels of competition. The top swimmers in the province will be doing their best to earn points for the coveted 2014 Airdrie Summer Games banner.

SOFTBALL

This modified form of baseball is played by two teams of nine players playing on a small field with a larger ball, seven innings, and the practice of underhand pitching.

TEAM HANDBALL

This team ball sport played by two teams of seven in which goals are scored by throwing the ball into a netted goal. The ball is passed by throwing between teammates at high speed creating opportunities to score.

TRIATHLON

Triathlon is an athletic competition that is comprised of three events; swimming, cycling, and running. The goal of the sport is to complete the three events as fast as possible.

VOLLEYBALL-BEACH

This is a team ball sport and a variation of volleyball played by two teams of two players in a sand court divided by a net in which the goal is to send the ball over the net in order to hit the ground on the opponent’s side.

GAMES Entertainment Let us entertain you Airdrie welcomes all GAMES participants, guests – everyone – to the Alberta 2014 Summer Games. With extended hours throughout the GAMES, you’ll want to visit our museum, take a ride on our railroad and checkout our library, now with ‘Alberta-wide Borrowing.’ Our newly renovated performing arts facility, The Bert Church Theatre, will offer performances on Thursday and Friday of the GAMES.

Nose Creek Valley Museum

With over 100 years of local history on display, NCVM offers a most interesting glimpse into life in the area when Airdrie was known as ‘a days ride north’ (out of Calgary.) NCVM (403) 946-6685 nosecreekvalleymuseum.com

Iron Horse Park

The miniature trains, track and landscape represent the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) from the prairies to the coast. Take the 1.6km interpretive journey aboard one of the 1/8th scale diesel or steam locomotives and get a feeling of what the railway was like during our pioneer days. The journey will take you over hills, across trestles and through tunnels. Snacks and souvenirs can be found in the full size replica of a CPR station. Picnic tables provide a place for family gatherings. IHP (403) 948-2601 ironhorsepark.net

Airdrie Public Library

Open throughout the GAMES with extended evening hours you will be welcome to watch movies, play board and computer games (Wii and X-Box) plus, with the newly introduced ‘Alberta-wide Borrowing,’ you will be able to checkout library items for return at your own library. APL (403) 948-0600 airdriepubliclibrary.ca Live

The Bert Church ^ Theatre

In the afternoons, an internationally recognized ‘Kids Fest’ act will entertain with a family-friendly performance, followed by a sponsored post show reception in the theatre lobby. In the evenings, Airdrie’s own Nose Creek Players will present two 1-act plays: ‘FOKE’ by BJ Ronnback is a musical comedy that’s right out of everyday Alberta. Two ‘gentlemen’ vie for the attention of a young lady – Wendy, the bar waitress. Say no more . . . ‘If it’s Not Too Much Trouble’ by Trevor Poelman was the winner of the 2013 Toronto Fringe festival. A comedy about family, with all the quirks, messes and joys that are all too familiar. Both plays will tickle your funny bone – guaranteed! A sponsored reception in the theatre lobby will feature art work by area artists. BCT (403) 948-8824 thebertchurchtheatre.com guidetoairdrie.com

that is no less than 12mm thick to pick up the passed hollow rubber ring, that has an inside diameter of no more than 4.45 inches. For more information about the game of ringette and/or registration, please contact Sherrie Enes at 403-948-7515, or visit airdrieringette.com

In 1890 a stopping house was opened by Mrs. Hamington to serve as lodging for travelers on the Calgary Edmonton trail. Soon the C and E Railway was built and the siding 29 Kilometers north of Calgary was named Crossfield in honor of an engineer with a CPR surveying crew. By August 1, 1980, the population of Crossfield reached over 1000 people; as a result, the village was incorporated into a Town. Crossfield offers two schools within the Rocky View school division: Crossfield Elementary School featuring kindergarten to grade 5 and W.G Murdoch featuring grades 6-12, and the NSD program for hockey skill, a large modern Community Center, brand new seniors lodge, churches, and a public library hosting a number of great programs.
