"Everybody Can Be Great - Because Anybody Can Serve." – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Monday, January 17, is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  On this day, we will again learn about the contributions and sacrifices of Dr. King and come together to serve our neighbors and communities. As a District, we believe that giving back to others is important. Consider using the MLK Day of Service as an opportunity to turn a day off into a day of action.

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others,” said Dr. King. This holiday reminds us to reflect on the vital work to which Dr. King devoted his life. Dr. King was born on January 15, 1929. His national holiday is celebrated on the third Monday in January every year.
