The Salvation Army will host a Martin Luther King Day celebration on Monday, January 16th from 10:00 until 2:00. Children and teens of all ages are invited to take part in this event. This year’s theme is DREAM, MOVE, SERVE. We will begin with a brief talk and question and answer session from a woman who will tell us about her experiences in the South during The Civil Rights Era. Her insights will be as relevant today as it was in the 1950’s and 60’s.
Participants will then be invited to join age appropriate workshops based upon the day’s theme: Dream, Move, Serve. After the workshops, lunch will be served and the children will have the opportunity to make cards which will be distributed to The Hospice of the Western Reserve located on E. 185th Street.
At the end of the day participants will be invited to share the projects that they created during the workshops.
Event planners include: Caroline Peak, Charlotte Iafeliece, Margaret Craig, Sr. Madeline Muller, Jamar Doyle and Valerie Beutel. AmeriCorps members from NEOMED and University Hospital will volunteer.
