The parade begins at 2:00 p.m. and there is a good chance we’ll all get together afterward some place fun.

If you are aware of other groups or individuals who might want to participate with us please pass this information along!

Dr. King left a legacy of sacrifice and dedication to the needs of people other than himself.  His inspiration is bringing all of us together and we hope to see as many of you join with us as possible.
