Remembering Rosanne Softley

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news on the passing of Rosanne Softley. As many of you have come to know, the Festival of Lights was established 25 years ago in 1996 by then alderman, Stan Softley. Stan’s wife, Rose was an incredible supporter of the Airdrie Festival of Lights, and played an integral role alongside Stan as he made his dream for this event come to life. Even though they have since retired, they’ve not been far, and their presence will never be forgotten. We’d like to offer our sincere condolences to Stan, and the Softley family as they navigate this difficult time. And to Rose, Keep the GLOW, and help us shine even brighter as we celebrate 25 years.
