Learning about Martin Luther King

Members of the Chelsea Rotary Club and the Chelsea High School Key Club presented a program about Martin Luther King Jr. to the residents of St. Louis Center on Thursday, January 19, 2023. St. Louis Center welcomed Chelsea and the surrounding communities to learn about Dr. King and discuss discrimination.

Residents and the community join in conversation

After a short movie, a discussion was led by students from Chelsea High School Key Club (Kiwanis Service Club) and Interact (Rotary Service Club). St. Louis Center residents and community members joined the conversation. This was part of the One World One Family organization “2023 Chelsea’s Martin Luther King Jr. Days of Service and Social Action” event.

St. Louis Center residents joined in the discussion about inequality and injustice. Residents reflected on things they do daily to help others, including holding doors for friends, participating in the Meals on Wheels program, and being a volunteer for local events. Everyone walked away learning something new about Martin Luther King Jr., and with ideas on how they can strive to be better community members.
