Martin Luther King Jr. Day

If you are off Monday you can make Martin Luther King Jr. Day special. Make it a Day of Service. Here is a local opportunity to help the community and make yourself feel good.

The Pleasant Grove Church, which is located across from the Babe James Center is holding a breakfast and beach cleanup on Monday, January 19th. Breakfast will be served from 7:30am-8:30am. The March is at 8:45 and the beach cleanup is at 11:00 am at the Flagler Ave Beach Ramp. These are separate events you can attend one or both.
