Bedford Embraces Diversity and Bedford Interfaith Clergy Network
Bedford Embraces Diversity and the Bedford Interfaith Clergy Network are partnering to plan an expanded community celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, January 20, 2020, 9.30 am (doors open at 9 am) at First Church of Christ, Congregational. There will be a light breakfast followed by inspirational remarks by the Rev. Vernon K. Walker. The speaker is a leader in social justice and climate action.
Admission will be $5, covering the breakfast, plus a suggested donation of paper goods or toiletries for the food pantry at Middlesex Community College. These donations will help students’ and teachers’ families in need. Appropriate items include paper towels, tissues, soap, toothpaste, shampoo, shaving cream and razors, and personal hygiene products, as well as dish and laundry detergent, plastic wrap, aluminum foil, plastic storage bags and cleaning supplies.
For the first time, the commemoration will include a community service component, with a choice of activities that reflect Dr. King’s message. The theme for the day is, “Who's My Neighbor?”
Please register for the breakfast and the project you would like to volunteer for.
