Live Oak —
The 18th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parade was held in Live Oak on Monday beginning at 10 a.m. at Suwannee-Hamilton Technical Center on Pinewood Drive. The parade ended at African Missionary Baptist Church on Walker Avenue which was the site of a celebration in honor of King. Afterwards, folks got to fellowship while a variety of foods were available to eat on the church grounds.
“We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the members of this community that continue to support our efforts as we celebrate the life and contributions of our greatest civil rights leader. As our nation celebrates the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, we remember our tragedies, celebrate our triumphs, and act in ways to serve and contribute to our world,” the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Planning Committee stated. “We look forward to next year’s festivities and hope to have an even greater level of support and participation from the great citizens of Suwannee County. We encourage each of you to become a part of the committee as we plan for MLK Day 2015.”
