MLK Parade and Potluck

posted Jan 17, 2010, 11:10 AM by Robert Waltz
We wish to invite you and yoursl to two events on Martin Luther King Day this coming Monday, 1/18. The Knoxville Green Party will again participate in the parade with a contingent of walkers and cyclists. The parade will commence, as in the past, from the parking lot just west of the large church on the left side of MLK Boulevard about a mile east of downtown. The parade kicks off at 10AM so we should be there by 9:30AM. There is ample parking on side streets but I think vehicles that are not in the parade would not be allowed in the lot where the parade organizes. The parade route is about 2 miles and ends at roughly 12 noon at the the Greater Warner AME church where there will be a program which everyone should see at least once, always engaging!
Also, United Campus Workers (the UT Union) is hosting a potluck at 5:30PM at the UNITE Building at 1124 North Broadway, about a mile north of downtown on the right. The guest speaker is Brenda Scott, President of the Mississippi Alliance of State Employees.
We hope to see many of you at either or both of these events as we celebrate one of our country's great leaders.
