CCV Burlington Celebrates MLK Day!




In commemoration of MLK Day, CCV Burlington’s Student Advisory Board is organizing its second annual service event on January 19, 2009. 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 12:00 PM to talk about King’s life and commitment to community service before heading down to City Hall at 12:45 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.
