– May 2/2012 at the Winnipeg Convention Center
Almost 1,000 people in attendance, 97 nominees!
I was a nominee and that was an honor in of itself.
I want to thank Barbara Bowes, my nominator, who herself is a past recipient of the WOD award
The awards are for recognising the amazing women in Winnipeg and acknowledging their contributions to the community. I congratulate the winners.
But mostly I want to thank the event coordinators… (They were a hoot) I had a great time and my husband loves to attend these events…he didn’t care if I won…as long as he gets a free dinner out of it.
I wasn’t nervous and it wasn’t difficult…I am just glad I wasn’t one of the judges…it couldn’t have been easy, so many were deserving of the award. After being nominated I was also recognised by Joyce Bateman, M.P. of Winnipeg South Centre. I would like to share the letter that I received from her with you as well.
