Preparing for MLK Day 2020

Prepare the Way for MLK Day

MLK Day can’t be a “one and done” experience.   We need to open our hearts and minds in preparation for our District Virtual MLK Service, 12:00 Noon, January 18, 2021.  We invite you to use one of the following resources, to prepare the way for MLK Day.
