Free Community Supper For Families to Celebrate MLK and Local Volunteers

This Friday Healthy Acadia along with Machias High School volunteers are offering a free community supper to celebrate the work of Martin Luther King, Jr.  It’s a great opportunity to talk to your kids about the impact of Dr. King’s Nobel Prize winning work on civil rights and social justice and encourage them to think about ways they can get involved in our community through helping others.  Martin-Luther-King-Jr_-Day-2013-Best-Quotes
