Some thoughts on the Western Legacy Awards from one of last year’s winners, Rick Smith.
Preserving and promoting Western Heritage, values and Way of Life have been my Life’s passion…Receiving recognition from the Calgary Stampede by winning the prestigious Western Legacy Award is an honor I will forever cherish.
We all know people who typify and live by WESTERN VALUES and who appreciate Western Heritage, and by doing so, usually in a quiet way, make the community in which they live a better place. They do not seek or expect recognition, however, acknowledging their contributions, through the Calgary Stampede’s Western Legacy Awards deservedly shines a light on them and expresses the community’s gratitude.
The community may be big or small, urban or rural, on the map or off the beaten path, however it’s home and its quality of life is measured by the activities and attitudes of its residents. The presence of WESTERN VALUES and all it entails is always an asset.
