Becky Riddel has been doodling forever, a perfect hobby for creating the 2017 Special Olympics Alberta Holiday Card.
“I LIKE WRITING POEMS AND DRAWING AND I JUST CAME UP WITH THE POEM AT THE TOP OF MY HEAD,” SAID RIDDEL.
“I thought I would add the trees, presents and Special Olympics symbol too.”
Becky Riddel was introduced to Special Olympics by her husband, Jeff Riddel in November of 2009 and since then she’s been competing in curling and bocce and stayed with the movement because she likes learning skills and meeting new friends.
For Becky, the holidays is all about family and friends. She is looking forward to visiting her family in Nakusp, BC and taking part in their traditional imaginary gift exchange where family members make up a fun story for each family member as part of their Christmas gift.
