Please join us for the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration at Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center.

The event will include a keynote presentation, live entertainment and a tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. The MPRB will also present its Living the Dream award to an individual, community group, or business that has demonstrated dedication and distinguished service to the lives of Minneapolis residents and park users. The honoree must act consistently with the teachings and examples of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as the award is intended to recognize those whose work embodies Dr. King's message of Unity and commitment to community. To nominate an individual, community group or business please fill out a nomination form and return to Tom Godfrey at TGodfrey@minneapolisparks.org

The Celebration will also mark the 6th Annual "Feeding the Dream" food drive. The food drive will take place at recreation centers throughout the city. The community service project was initiated in the fall of 2009 and since then more than 7,000 pounds of donations have been connected.

For more information, please email TGodfrey@minneapolisparks.org or call 612-230-6484.
