Athens-Clarke County MLK Day of Service
Athens Land Trust is participating in the 17th annual Athens-Clarke County MLK Day of Service on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, January 21st, 2019. We would like to invite all who are interested to spend their MLK Day serving the Athens community with a day on rather than a day off. Athens Land Trust will host volunteers at four different sites this year: the West Broad Garden, Beech Haven, Mae Willie Morton Community Garden, and the Community Garden at Athena Gardens. The kickoff for this event is scheduled for 8:30 A.M. at Cedar Shoals High School, which will include breakfast biscuits and a speaker from the community who will introduce the Day of Service and inspire volunteers. Volunteers will arrive at their sites around 9:30 A.M. and service will go until about 12:30 P.M. Additionally, we will be hosting an MLK Day Celebration again this year at the West Broad Garden after the conclusion of the Day of Service.
Everyone is welcome to participate in the day of service and/or the celebration at West Broad. For more information on the 2019 MLK Day of Service please visit: https://www.accgov.com/MLKDay
