[ARCHIVED] Join Us on May 14 for Show Low’s MLK Day of Service

Day of Service honors King’s legacy of strengthening communities

SHOW LOW, Ariz. (April 13, 2016) – Join City of Show Low employees and volunteers in honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. with a Day of Service on Saturday, May 14. Everyone will meet at 9 a.m. at the Old Pavilion in Show Low City Park, 1100 W. Deuce of Clubs, for assignments. (The Old Pavilion is the pavilion closest to the aquatic center.) Lunch follows at noon in the same location, with barbecuing equipment generously provided by United Rentals of Show Low.

Teams of 15 to 30 individuals will be assigned to work at various locations on projects that may include painting, landscaping, trash pickup and/or general beautification. Volunteers should bring gloves and wear closed-toe shoes. The city will provide other equipment and supplies as needed.

Go to www.justserve.org to register or for information. Type in zip code 85901 and select City of Show Low Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. Volunteers, however, do not need to register to participate in our community project. Direct questions to Jay Brimhall at 532-4014 or jbrimhall@showlowaz.gov.

Every year, the City of Show Low pays homage to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s ideals of strengthening communities through public service by participating in a community-wide project. The holiday is observed in January, but the city holds its annual King Day of Service in May because of the possibility of inclement weather. The King Day of Service was initiated by Congress in 1994 to bring together people of all ages and backgrounds to improve lives and bridge social barriers through public service.
