        MLK Jr. Day events planned

        From the moment the sun rises on Monday until it sets in the evening, events in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. will offer area residents an opportunity to share a meal and prayers in the name of peace and community togetherness.

        Kicking off at 7 a.m. will be the Martin Luther King Jr. birthday celebration in Abbeville that begins with a full breakfast buffet at the Abbeville School on County Road 115.

        As the sun starts its descent on the LOU community, folks will gather in Oxford at 6 p.m. at Second Baptist Church, just west of the Square, for the annual candle light vigil hosted by Second Baptist, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and Eta Zeta Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Inc. (January 14, 2011, Page 1A)
