St. John's Baptist Church in Woburn will be hosting an MLK Luncheon on Monday, January 16 starting at 11:30 am. Following the luncheon will be a program highlighting the accomplishments of Martin Luther King Jr. and what the future holds for his vision of a "beloved community." Lunch will include fried chicken, collard greents, candied yams, and other Southern cuisine. The program begins at 1pm with keynote speaker Rev. Arthur Hilson, president of the United Baptist Convention of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire.
When you're off from school or work on MLK Day this year, why not give back to a community that needs you?
Join many at the Franklin Park Clubhouse in the morning for a discussion about what Ferguson means for Franklin Park and the communities you care about. Afterwards, volunteers will head into the park to help clear invasives that are killing young native trees and do other green improvement projects.
The Woburn Youth Council is holding a Night of Service this coming Tuesday, January 17, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The event will be held at the Boys and Girls Club of Woburn, and is open to members and their families.
