The Airdrie Regional Air Show Society presented four community groups with cheques Tuesday afternoon. All of the groups volunteered at the 2011 Air Show in July and had a large part in its success so the Society is happy to be able to give back to them. A total of $6,000 was given to the Airdrie Girl Guides, Airdrie Junior Forest Wardens, the Airdrie Lynx Air Cadets, and the 604 Moose Cadets of Calgary.
This year's show saw $25,000 in profits with $6,000 going to the non-profit groups, $3,000 pegged for necessary storage equipment for the next show, and the remaining $16,000 will be used to fund the 2013 air show. The date will be announced in late December.
