MLK Day Celebration

We hope you can join us on Monday, January 17, 2021 at the Clark Ave. Middle School to celebrate Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the accomplishments we have made together as one in our small but mighty city.  We overcome our challenges because we all work towards Justice for ALL, because We Are Tied Together.

Our city and school community is rich in diversity of languages, cultures, cuisines, families, and people. Our rich diversity brings us all together in Chelsea to make us a beautiful and beloved community. We are all connected and tied together as a community because of our diversity!

In Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s  “Letters from a Birmingham Jail”, Dr. King reminds us that “We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

During these past two years of COVID, economic hardships, and social challenges we in Chelsea are reminded that we are all inescapably tied together – what affects one of us, affects all of us.

Breakfast will be served beginning at 9am and followed by the program at 10am.

We hope to see you all there!
