Martin Luther King Celebration in Lake Worth

Where were you on the MLK bank holiday day ?  I ran into the very  same volunteers from years past and  the very same  that work tirelessly at all the other great happenings around Lake Worth. It’s time they get acknowledged.   The first part of the day started 7:30 a.m. for most but the volunteers were there far earlier.  Breakfast was served to all who attended from every religious house of worship in Lake Worth.

Part of their participation and very first public appearance. We were lucky to again have actor Darcyn Blount read poems from Langston Hughes and Margot from the other St. Andrew gave a historical perspective on this  important holiday.

Got lots of great pictures of these kids.

There was for the first time a Sing A Long on the steps of our City Hall which then led a candle light procession to the Cultural Plaza and a rededication of the Martin Luther King Jr. Fountain.   Then on to the St. Andrews Church on the north side off Lucerne.  The former church where everyone gathered in previous years has been sold.

recognize some of the same ones ?
