Officials in Elkton are reminding residents about this weekend’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day commemoration event.
This year’s Todd County Martin Luther King Commemoration will be Sunday in the Todd County Central High School Auditorium at 3pm. The speaker will be Jefferson Davis State Park Manager Ron Sydnor, who became the first African-American to hold that position nearly three years ago.
Music will be provided by church choirs in Todd County and the theme is “You and I Keeping the Dream Alive.”
Organizer Lisa Lewis Balboa says there will also be a banner contest sponsored by the Todd County Standard. It’s open to all children and youth groups in Todd County and winners will receive a cash reward. Anyone with questions about the Todd County activities should call Ms. Balboa at 270-954-3004.
