Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebration a full-day event
The annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration, to be held on Jan. 21, 2002, will be expanded to a full-day event. The committee planning the event also hopes to involve more of Sussex County this year. “Previously, the MLK celebration has drawn support from Western Sussex, primarily Seaford, Woodbridge, Delmar and Laurel,” said event co-chairman Willie Savage. “ This year, by working through the high school counselors and youth groups, we hope to involve more of the county.” As in the past, there will be refreshments, a keynote speaker and uplifting musical selections. January’s event may include other respectful entertainment such as essay or poetry contests, liturgical dance and a fashion show. Granting of scholarships to area students will continue to be a significant part of the overall MLK Celebration Program. “The theme for this year’s program will be ‘United We Stand’,” according to Darrell Marshall, co-chairman. “While the purpose of the celebration has always been to build unity in our community, events of September 11, 2001 underscore that need.” Persons interested in participating in the planning of this event should contact either Willie Savage, 629-5947, or Darrell Marshall at 629-1422.
