Honoring MLK

Knights of Columbus hold annual dinner celebrating life of MLK

Every year, Martin Luther King Jr., is celebrated across the nation for his major role and contribution towards the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 60s. This past Saturday, the Knights of Columbus held their Annual Remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., dinner at the Knights of Columbus Hall.

Committee member for the dinner, Jim French, said the dinner was originally suggested about 13 years ago by Rosa Johnson, who requested that the Knights of Columbus hold a celebration in honor of MLK Jr. “And so we started out doing it,” said French. “And I set it up and ran it for 11 years.” French said it was basically a community program presented by the Knights to remember “a man who stood up and said, ‘We got to do things differently.’”
