Griesbach to raise Pride flag on June 5th

Griesbach is an incredibly diverse and progressive community. For many of us, the inclusive and welcoming atmosphere is a big part of its appeal.

To kick off Edmonton’s Pride Week festivities and show our support for our amazing friends and neighbours in the LBGTQ community, Griesbach Community League will be flying the Pride Flag in Patricia Park.

You are invited to join us for the flag raising: Friday, June 5th at 7 pm.

An informal ceremony will take place in Griesbach’s Patricia Park, which was created in honour of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. The PPCLI have been very supportive of this initiative, which is being done with their full blessing.

It should be a perfect evening for the festivities. We hope you can stop by!

On a personal note, in the short time we have lived here, my wife and I have the genuine pleasure of becoming close friends with a number of openly gay residents. We are so much richer for the experience. They are always ready to share a drink and a laugh. They are always there to support us in times of need. They are fun travel companions. They are among our most active community boosters and volunteers. And they take incredible pride in our community. We’re blessed to have them in our lives. I hope you can come out and show your support.
