March, Program Mark Observance of MLK Day

Wayne Howard

 A march down Main Street and a program at the Lincoln Cultural Center marked the observance of Martin Luther King Day in Lincolnton  The two events were held Sunday (Jan. 20) instead of on the holiday Monday to avoid conflict with the Presidential Inauguration.  The annual breakfast usually held on MLK Day was also rescheduled this year--to February 16th.

The East Lincoln High School Band provided music for the brief program on the Courtsquare following the march.  The crowd listened to a part of Dr. King's "I Have A Dream" speech before hearing local remarks.  After the short program at the Courthouse, the band led a march back down Main Street to the Cultural Center where the Rev. Dr. Terry Cline, pastor of Pine Street Presbyterian Church, addressed the gathering.
