The 2012 Martin Luther King Jr. celebration was held at The Hill School, as will this year's. 

The Annual Pottstown Community Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration will be held on 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 19,  at The Hill School Center for the Arts.

The entire Pottstown Community is invited to share in this celebration as we remember the "Life and Work" of Dr. King. 

Organizers are asking those reading this to mark their calendar and encourage members of their congregation/ organization to attend. 

Local business, political, religious, education, student and community leaders are encouraged to attend

They hope to make this "our largest ever celebration given the fact that it was only a few months since we celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the 'March on Washington,'" the Rev. Vernon Ross, pastor of Bethel AME Church, wrote in an e-mail received by The Mercury.

Please note that the offering this year will be given to the Pottstown School District to support its Math/STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) Program.

"We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character …. That is the goal of a true education," King wrote in 1947 in the student newspaper of Morehouse College in an article titled "the purpose of education."

The Pottstown Community MLK Choir will be singing along with other Instrumentalist. Those interested in singing are invited to attend the upcoming Choir Rehearsals to be announced.  

Refreshments will provided by Wegman’s

Those who wish to be listed as a Participating Supporter, should confirm with Rev. RossVernon.Ross@LMCO.COM or 610-805-9084.
