Minden Hills will be coming together to celebrate Pride Week in the township in August.

It will be the first time the Minden Pride Community is having a week-long celebration.

The week starts August 21 with the raising of the rainbow flag at the township office.

Among the events will be Minden Pride trivia at the Dominion Hotel on August 24th, and a tea and dance event on the 26.

Minden Pride week wraps up with a church service on August 27, followed by a pride picnic.
