A community celebration in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. will be held beginning at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 17, at Bozeman's Emerson Cultural Center.

Students from the One Million Ways Club will help people make signs for the march while enjoying the music of the Bourbon Street Players beginning at 11 a.m.

At noon all ages are invited to "Walk the Dream" in a commemorative march from the Emerson to downtown and back.

Immediately following, Rob Watson, principal of Bozeman High School, will speak, along with music performed by Ben and Ethan Klein. More music by Marshall McLean will precede a short talk by the Rev. Denise Rogers with a finale of "We Shall Overcome."

The King Foundation, a national organization founded by Coretta Scott King, envisions MLK Day as a day of service and education. In this spirit, local non-profit groups will be available to inform the public of services they offer the community, volunteer opportunities or how the community may donate money.

This event is open to people of all ages who are interested in commemorating the life and values of Dr. Martin Luther King. Sponsored by the Bozeman Public Library, We Are the Dream, Gallatin Valley Human RightsTask Force, MSU Office of Community Involvement, the Diversity Awareness Office at MSU and other organizations.

For more information, please call the Library at 582-2420.
