MH launches contest to name common room
The Township of Minden Hills has launched the Made in Minden: Room for Improvement Contest to name the common room at the Minden Hills Cultural Centre.
Home to the Minden library before the current Minden branch of the Haliburton County Public Library was constructed, the common room is a multi-purpose space used for a variety of activities and events at the centre.
“We launched this contest to remind locals to be proud of their roots,” township economic development, destination and marketing officer Emily Stonehouse told the Times. “Minden is a community filled with stories and successes, and I thought this contest would be a way to share those stories and learn from our past while we work towards our future together. We look forward to hearing stories and sharing them with the community.”
The township is looking for the name of a person, place or story that played a key role in the development of Minden.
Entry forms can be found on the township’s website at https://mindenhills.ca/minden-hills-cultural-centre-home/, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or dropped off in person at the cultural centre.
There is a limit of one entry per person, and the judging of submissions will be completed by a panel consisting of community members and township staff.
The contest deadline is March 8 and in April, the submitted stories and photos will be displayed in the common room, and a plaque with the chosen name revealed.
