The City of Airdrie honoured former Century 21 Airdrie owner and agent Ed Eggerer, who passed in 2013, by renaming the Airdrie's East Lake Athletic Park to the Ed Eggerer Athletic Park which will be showcased at 2014 Alberta Summer games being hosted in Airdrie. Ed's family, who attended the announcement were very honoured.
Ed was a long-time citizen of Airdrie and was a substantial part in helping Airdrie grow into the wonderful community it is today. He was a major contributor to the athletic programs in the Airdrie high schools and always had time to volunteer with local charities and organizations. In May 2013, Ed was honoured with the Ambassador Award by the City of Airdrie which recognizes citizen or business that “has made an outstanding contribution in promoting the City of Airdrie as a place for community and opportunity through volunteerism and philanthropy.”
A standing ovation followed as the members of the council applauded the announcement. Everyone was very moved by this motion to honour a great man.
