The 2018 Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration is scheduled for Monday, January 15. The theme of this year's celebration is Sharing the Dream – moving forward as a nation in unity, without regards to race, wealth or past history.
As in years past, there will be a march from downtown Gonzales to the Edwards Community Center, followed by a program on the life of Dr. King featuring local students and church groups, then ending with the annual Love and Unity Community Luncheon.
Sponsorship for the event is $100. Sponsorships and all other tax-deductible donations may be sent to Edwards Association MLK Day Celebration, P.O. Box 1823, Gonzales, Texas 78629.
