February is Black History Month and today we would like to recognize Martin Luther King Jr. As a civil rights activist, he helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and led the Montgomery Bus Boycott. He led many nonviolent protests against segregation in the south. In 1963 he helped organize the March on Washington where he gave his “I Have a Dream” speech. He received the Nobel Peace Prize for his work for racial equality and against poverty and the Vietnam War. King was assassinated in 1968 and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom years later.

The Annual Food Truck Friday Event is March 20th, from 6 pm to 9 pm located in the bus lanes at Mill Creek Middle School. Bring your friends, family, neighbors, teammates and lawn chairs! There will be plenty of food, inflatables, on-stage entertainment, a rockin' DJ and lots of exhibitors. It is free to come, free inflatable slides and obstacle courses for the kids, and free on-stage performances and entertainment.  Bring cash for food, concessions, face or hair painting, pie-throwing, rock climbing, bull riding, silent auction, and any exhibitor purchases.  This is going to be such a fun event!
