On July 5th, Aurora was the recipient of the “Not Afraid to Get Your Hands Dirty” award. She was nominated by Caryn Douglas of St. Matthew’s Ministry who recognized her participation in the community and ongoing work with WarmToes.ca as having a positive and motivational impact in the community. The Provincial Council of Women of Manitoba held it’s 10th annual Gala Awards night to honour women of Manitoba, Aurora and five other ladies, with speeches and presentations of the award. Aurora gets to bring home for a year a wonderful quilt with names of all of the previous recipients and hers was added to the quilt for 2016.
Our family was in attendance and so were both of Aurora’s grandmother’s who have both been strong supporters of Aurora and WarmToes.
