- Published: January 15, 2014
Lakeland College will celebrate Martin Luther King Day with a Peace Walk on the afternoon of Monday, Jan. 20.
Beginning at 4:30 p.m., members of the Lakeland community — students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of the college — are invited to gather in the Younger Family Campus Center. The group will depart Lakeland by 4:45 p.m. for a candlelit walk up the hill to Immanuel United Church of Christ, located on the corner of County Roads M and FF. The Lakeland group will be joined by Immanuel congregation members at the church.
Following some remarks about King's legacy and a message of peace, everyone will walk back to Lakeland's campus center for coffee, hot chocolate, snacks and fellowship.
