After a time of discernment and the input from our planning group as well as other health experts, we are scaling back our MLK Weekend events. We believe that Dr. and Mrs. King would support community health safety during these pandemic times. We strongly encourage participants to adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols for our events.
[Note: There will be ongoing events in the spring and summer of 2022 and we plan on having our next MLK weekend in January 2023.]
