In celebration of Pride Week, the raising of the Pride Flag took place at Morinville Town Hall on Tuesday evening.
A short reception took place in Council Chambers immediately following the flag raising.
Mayor Barry Turner read the Proclamation to proclaim June 10-16 Pride Week in Morinville.
In part he read,”The intent of Pride Week is to promote Morinville as a safe and welcoming place for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities to attend school, to work, to raise a family, to start a business, to live.
“Every person in our town is entitled to be treated with dignity and worth and without discrimination, prejudice and harassment.”
