Pride in Manchester. This time of year it's a celebration -- a series of them, actually -- and you can click here to see a flier that breaks it all down ... Saturday night's free Motown concert, the art show on Sunday, all of it. But pride-with-a-lower-case-p in Manchester is apparent all year 'round, taking many shapes and forms. We try to capture something special each and every week, things we can be proud of, and invite you to follow along by subscribing to this newsletter. It's easy to do.
