Yesterday I was honored to receive an invitation to participate in the 2006 Alle-Kiski Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Service. The service will happen on January 29, 2006.
While I was on the phone call about the service I asked why this major community service gets scheduled so far after Dr. King's birthday. I was told that the organizers have learned that it has to happen after the football season is past in order to be a success.
This is just another point on my learning curve about the culture here in Western Pennsylvania.
Central Presbyterian Church hosted the service in 2005.
