We like to think of Lois as our go-to for any events going on in and around Airdrie. Friendly and fun, she and/or her hubby will appear at almost every major event in our community. You really can’t speak of Lois and not mention Al. Within the last few years he has been the recipient of several prestigious awards such as the Stars of Alberta Volunteer Award and the Diamond Jubilee Medal. However Lois is definitely the driving force behind their success as she deftly manages the business, home and their extensive social calendar!
A notorious “giver” in ways you can’t imagine, her pride and joy (aside from family) is the business. Here’s the Scoop is our “no news is good news”, “weekly dose of awesome” paper that circulates to residents in Airdrie, Carstairs and Irricana. Add in the web design, printing, and Advance Distribution aspects and we are a lucky bunch to have Lois and her business in our community. Over the past year, it has been her continued dedication and efforts that have left Al saying off hand, “Not sure I have a job to go back to!”
Always ready to have fun at work or play, Lois is one of a kind. With no shortage of accolades, gratitude and glowing references for this feature here are just some of our favourite quotes:

Mike De Bokx: “My experience with Lois and Here's The Scoop has been exceptional. The results I have achieved as a direct result of advertising with Here's The Scoop have exceeded all of my other marketing efforts combined! If you have a product or service to promote, you HAVE to be in Here's The Scoop!”
What can we say? Lois is the epitome of one of Airdrie’s AMAZING women. We are proud of her, proud to know her and proud of everything she has accomplished. Life is definitely better with Lois in it!
Finally in her own words, “An Irish Blessing for you and your families: May neighbours respect you, trouble neglect you, the angels protect you and heaven accept you.” Thanks Lois!
