Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'"
Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.

Join us this year at the Cedars House Cafe as we work together in the service of our city and honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
