Martin Luther King Jr. celebrated

The Northern Nevada Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Committee and the Nevada Clergy Association jointly presented the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Celebration events for 2011.

An interfaith memorial service was held Sunday, January 16, 2011 at 3:00 PM at Reno First Methodist Church in downtown Reno. The theme of this year’s event was “Remembering the Dream, Fulfilling the Mandate.” Owing to the efforts of the Reverend Onie Cooper of the Second Baptist Church, this event was originally brought to fruition and has continued for decades. It is now up to the Nevada Clergy Association to join the Holiday Committee to help “keep the dream alive.” Both the Nevada Clergy Association and the Northern Nevada Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Committee are presently headed by Bishop Gene Savoy Jr.

On Monday, January 17, a memorial caravan, beginning at 10:30 AM at the Second Baptist Church in Reno, followed the twenty-six miles of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Highway along US 395.
