MLK Day community events in Northampton

President-Elect Obama called for a day of community service on the next Federal holiday, January 19th. In the spirit of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, join the whole Pioneer Valley community for a day of learning, fun & community service. I can’t think of a better way to meet some neighbors and get inspired for the new year. Visit All Things Pass for a complete rundown of events. I’ve summarized below:

  • African American Heritage Tour (10:30-11:45 am)
  • MLK lunch (12:00 noon)
  • Community Celebration (1:00-5:00 pm)
  • Evening Benefit (7:00-9:30 pm)

Hope to see you there!

    I think a day of community service is a great idea! I wonder what I could do… *puts thinking cap on*
    Thanks for visiting my blog- yours is great too & I’m glad to have found it/you! :-) Happy New Year.

    We were happy to visit your blog, and we also love what you’re talking about here. That’s why we’re reaching out to you…

    As we searched for paraphernalia that captured the power of the coming inauguration, we were struck by the dearth of merchandise that captured the power of the moment (everything was tacky, and nothing talked about Dr. King and President Obama). So we created our own designs to fill that void, and a suite of products featuring those images. 10% of all proceeds will go toward supporting the construction of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in Washington DC.

    We also know that not everyone can volunteer on the 19th. Perhaps these designs can be a different way for folks to get involved?
