What does Martin Luther King, Jr. Day mean to you? A 3 day weekend, A time to appreciate the rights and freedoms you enjoy? A time to give back? Each year, we spend a little time talking about this subject and the Man behind the day. With Martin Luther King, Jr, Day just a few days off, we'd like to share some past posts:

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service:

Monday, January 18, 2016, is the Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Day of Service.  Join Americans nationwide who will answer the call to service by assisting their communities in large and small ways. One of those ways can be ensuring that your loved ones and neighbors are ready for natural disasters, power outages, or other emergencies. You can build an emergency kit for a neighbor or check that the fire alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are properly working in a friend’s home. You can also find opportunities to serve through your local CERT and Citizen Corps Councils. The MLK Day of Service is part of the United We Serve initiative – the President’s national call to service. For more information, visit the Corporation for National Community Service website.
