Read the press release on this event here.

Thursday, January 19th at 6:00 pm, St. Louis Center will be showing a movie on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Following the movie, students from Chelsea High School Key Club (Kiwanis Service Club) and Interact (Rotary Service Club) will lead a discussion on discrimination and the film.

This event is part of the Chelsea 2023 Martin Luther King Jr. Days of Service and Social Action. These Days of Service will be Jan. 9-21, and a complete list of information can be found here.

Many community groups have organized activities and events for these two weeks to recall the spirit of Dr. King toward service and community involvement. Community members are encouraged to participate in as many activities as they can and to keep track of their work on Challenge Cards. Anyone who completes a row on the card will receive a certificate and small token.

The co-sponsors of this year’s events are One World One Family, The Chelsea District Library, Chelsea Rotary and the Chelsea Human Rights Commission. The Michigan Municipal League Foundation has provided a $500 Bridge Builder’s grant toward program expenses.

MLK-Challenge-Cards-2023-FINAL-12-30-22Challenge cards will be available in early January at the Chelsea District Library, City Council offices or at participating businesses. They can also be downloaded at www.owofchelsea.org/mlk2023.

The Challenge cards will include the activity details. Completed cards can be turned in at the library, brought to the closing event, or sent by email to owofchelsea@gmail.com.

A closing event for the Days of Service and Social Action will be held on Sunday, Jan. 22 at 3:30 p.m. at the library. This event will include a dramatic reading of Dr. King’s I Have a Dream Speech and presentation of the awards for completed Challenge Cards.
