Fifeville MLK Celebration today

I wish I had known about this earlier. Today, Abundant Life Ministries is sponsoring a Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration called “Fifeville: Dreaming For Tomorrow”, beginning at 12 noon with a Lunch and Health Fair at the Cherry Ave. Boys and Girls Club. From 2:00 to 4:00, there will be activities for K through 12 grade students. At 5:00, there will be a candlelight march (I’m not sure where, but I guess it’s starting at the B&G Club), then a ceremony at 5:45 at Buford Middle School, followed by a dinner from 7:30 to 9:00.

The flier I received is a little light on additional information, but does provide this phone number: 970-2016.
