The annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday is January 21, 2013. It is a time to reflect upon the teachings, work, and legacy of one of the nation’s heroes who worked for the betterment and improvement of all people.
Dr. King stated that “everybody can be great because everybody can serve.” Thus, Dr. King’s holiday is often noted as a “day on, not off,” and citizens are asked to involve themselves in a variety of volunteer community service activities.
This year, the U.S. President has named January 19, 2013, as the National Day of Service. Thus, service activities can be conducted on this day as well. Service should be more broadly defined, e.g., from participating in an educational workshop/performance to attending a dedication or tribute program; donating to the less fortunate; serving a few hours at a nonprofit, social improvement/development agency; and performing other acts of kindness.
Below are several events that will be going on in the Indiana community that will be available for your participation. Feel free to do so as your schedule permits.
All of the above events are free. For further information, please contact the AACC at 724-357-2455. Also, please let us know at the AACC if you participate in an activity during the MLK Holiday weekend. Thank you.
