The Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday is right around the corner, and while City Hall will be closed for the holiday, the city of Sandy Springs wants to invite everyone to join them on Monday, January 20th at 10:00 am for a celebration. The 2014 event is the 9th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration for the city. In addition to remembering and honoring Dr. King and his legacy, the 2014 Humanitarian Award will be awarded to a highly deserving Sandy Springs resident.
The award will go to a person distinguished for humanitarian contributions to society in his or her business, profession, volunteerism or philanthropic life’s work. Each nominee must have been a resident of Sandy Springs for the past three years or longer, or have worked in Sandy Springs for three years or longer and should embody the spirit and philosophy of Dr. King. Current Sandy Springs staff and elected officials are not eligible.
Monica Pearson, former WSB News anchor, will be this year’s keynote speaker.
This is the perfect opportunity to pay tribute to Dr. King as well as get involved with the local community. In addition to the festivities and networking, light refreshments will be served to attendees. The Celebration will take place at City Hall, City Council Chambers (7840 Roswell Road, Building 500). See you there!
