Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration

The 17th annual Walled Lake Schools community-wide Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration is planned for Monday, January 18, 2016 from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Walled Lake Northern High School. The celebration will begin with a multicultural dinner from 5:00 – 6:15 p.m. with food from a wide variety of ethnic restaurants. During the dinner participants will visit student displays from each of our 19 schools focusing on our theme “Seeing the World Through Different Eyes: A New Vision for Action”. Our dinner is sponsored by generous support from the PTA and PTSA groups from around our district as well as other contributors.

From 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. there will be a program in the auditorium featuring keynote speaker, Reverend Faith Fowler, who is the Executive Director of Cass Community Social Services in Detroit. Reverend Fowler will speak about her work over the past 20 years at Cass Community Social Services serving the homeless, developmentally disabled adults, and others in need. Several student choirs will perform, students will present their projects, and the Walled Lake Schools Friend of Diversity Awards will be presented.

Everyone in the community is invited to the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration which is a free program. We are asking everyone to bring a donation of canned food, boxed food, and personal products such as laundry detergent, Kleenex, toilet paper, and shampoo to be donated to the food pantry at Cass Community Social Services in Detroit.
