One residents’ commitment to community service
Every person has the power to make positive change in their community. Glenda Sheard lives by this sentiment, dedicating her time and energy to the Strathcona County community.

A County resident was concerned about his two dogs overheating and was looking for a cool, safe place to go. He reached out to Pet Valu on Baseline road for support and staff came to the rescue. Not only did the team take care of the pups, but they went above and beyond to also provide support for the resident.
Connecting youth and seniors through friendship
A new friend, a new connection, and the comfort of a shared laugh is much more important than we often realize, and we are never too young, or too old, to appreciate this. Linking Generations is driving this idea forward, making a positive impact of the health and well-being for both seniors and youth.
Celebrating the contributions of all abilities
It takes all of us to build a strong community, and what better way to celebrate than during National AccessAbility Week. It’s a time when accessibility and inclusion are promoted across communities and workplaces and a chance to celebrate the contributions of people with disabilities, visible or invisible.
