International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day on March 8th each year celebrates the social, economic, and political achievements of women around the world. We would like to that this opportunity to celebrate and shed a spotlight on a few of the local women who support our community!!
Cochrane Public Library Team was honoured by Cochrane Today as members of the community who has soared to new heights. “Jeri Maitland, the CAO/Library director, Andrea Johnston, Head Librarian/Assistant Director and Jesse Pepin, librarian, attribute the library’s success to the great working relationship of the team. Every inch of the small space that is Cochrane’s library is utilized making it a place to do more than simply check out a book or do research. Each said that relationship stems from a passion and enthusiasm for the job, which includes everyone raiding the library’s and their personal “tickle trunks” to dress for themed events.” The Library typically celebrates this day with an event, so we wanted to celebrate their team for all they do for our community!
Every year, The Paisley Boutique gives back by giving all proceeds from their Annual Fashion Show to the Cochrane Activettes to help them continue their good work helping the less fortunate. Laurel and her team have been dressing clients for success since 2010! Their amazing customer service has been recognized as one of the best places to shop and Gold for Best Women’s Clothing for the past 7 years! Let’s give a shout on to Laurel and her team to celebrate on this day!
