On Monday, January 18, 2021, the official holiday celebration for Dr. King, instead of our usual breakfast and march downtown, we will have a slow drive, starting at 2:00 PM at the Old Carver School Gym and proceeding through Eutaw, winding up at the Old Courthouse Gilmore Square. We will have a Freedom Rally at the Old Courthouse, where people can stay in their cars.
