Martin Luther King Workday and Celebration

Martin Luther King, 1964Image via Wikipedia
If you live in the Portland area you are cordially invited to attend the "Portland Backpack Buddies" Martin Luther King Workday and Celebration at Woodlawn United Methodist Church, 1425 NE Dekum St. in Northeast Portland on January 17. The workday begins at 1 pm by putting food supplies in backpacks which are given weekly to children in homes which would likely go without adequate food for the weekend. At about 2 pm we will gather for a celebration with a reading from Martin Luther King Jr., a gospel singer from the community, a local folk music group (The Day Old Pastries) and me, leading the group with my guitar in singing some of the great freedom songs from the civil rights movement. Hope you can make it.
