|Gwinnett’s United Ebony Society sets MLK celebration|
United Ebony Society of Gwinnett County, Inc. will host a Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration on Jan. 20 and 21.
This year’s theme, “Character and Service,” is a call to the community to answer the passionate words by Dr. King: What are you doing for others?
On Jan. 20, 3:30 p.m., the celebration starts at Meadowcreek High School, 4455 Steve Reynolds Blvd., Norcross. There will be essay readings and performances by Gwinnett students.
On Jan. 21, a parade honoring the civil rights leader begins at 10:30 a.m. at the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse, 185 Crogan Street, Lawrenceville, and ends at the Moore Middle School, 1221 Lawrenceville Highway, Lawrenceville.
It is not too late to register your parade teams and units, school bands, floats, cars, equestrians and motorcycle clubs, Scouts’ groups and other performers for the celebration. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend and participate in both events, which are free.
