CCV Celebrates MLK Day 2008

MLK Day 2008 is Monday, January 21. CCV classes will not be held on this day allowing us the opportunity to contemplate, celebrate and continue the struggle toward equal rights for all. There are many ways to be involved. For a statewide calendar of events, click here.

In commemoration of MLK Day, CCV Burlington’s Student Advisory Board is organizing a service event on January 21. Working with the Americorps program and local non-profits throughout Chittenden County, CCV students will have the opportunity to honor MLK’s legacy through volunteer work. We will be meeting in our 119 Pearl St. building at 11:00 AM to talk about King’s life and commitment to community service before heading down to City Hall at 12:00 PM. Students will be able to choose from a number of volunteer opportunities addressing many social issues. The day will conclude with a free community dinner with live music and entertainment at 5:00 PM in Contois Auditorium at City Hall. Please join us to meet some new folks and commemorate the life of one of America’s greatest human rights leaders the way he would have wanted you too, as a “Day On, Not a Day Off.” For more information, contact Ian Boyd at ian.boyd@ccv.edu.
