  • Organizers cancel Arlington MLK Day parade after Abbott decried, permit denied

Dr. Jason Vivadelli, principal of Woodbury Junior-Senior High School, along with Edward Murphy, director of Pupil Personnel Services, will officially start the Day of Service from 9 a.m.to 9:30 a.m.in the auditorium with a program marking the significance of the occasion and addressing the theme of "What are you doing for others?"

A march from downtown - in the area of Center, Weber and El Dorado streets - to King Plaza (the park across from the Civic Auditorium) is planned for Monday, which is the official MLK Jr.

Callaway said, "My favorite Martin Luther King quote is, 'Everybody can be great because anybody can serve.' And, essentially, he's saying you don't have to be a rocket scientist, you don't have to be brilliant, you don't have to be the president, but you can serve".

Rabbi Michael Beals from Congregation Beth Shalom said he started the interfaith services for Dr. King 13 years ago. He, instead, invoked the spirit of Dr. King with this statement: "No matter what the color of our skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by god". "It's an inspiring day, and it's one that is a strong reminder and one that orients us for every other day that follows", Holcomb said.

"That took a tremendous amount of work on my mother's part to expose him that way", King said.

National forests in 2018 offer six fee-free days: Monday (Martin Luther King Day), Feb. 19 (Presidents Day), June 19 (National Get Outdoors Day), Sept. 22 (National Public Lands Day) and November 11 and 12 (Veterans Day).

The event is free and open to the public. Day parade in North Texas has been canceled just days after groups threatened to boycott the event because Gov. Greg Abbott was chosen as honorary grand marshal. He was enthusiastic for the day's events, explaining how important they are for the community.
