Mark your calendar and plan to attend the City of Sandy Springs annual tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. scheduled for Monday, January 21, 2019. The event will be held at 10 a.m. in the Studio Theatre at City Springs, located at 1 Galambos Way, Sandy Springs, Ga. 30328.
Now in its 13th year, the event will celebrate the spirit of Dr. King and reflect the diversity of the community. Each day, throughout the City’s many non-profit organizations, volunteers give of their time, talent and treasure. This year, the tribute to Dr. King will acknowledge members of our community who make a difference in the lives of children every day. These unsung heroes are the volunteers that donate countless hours to the Los Ninos Primero, an organization dedicated to helping and inspiring students and their families from the Sandy Springs community. The event will also include performances by the children.
“Dr. King believed that even the smallest amount of encouragement and support to help someone matters. It is fitting that we use this day to acknowledge the many who give of themselves by volunteering, and at the same time, inform the community on opportunities where they, too, can get involved,” said Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul.
Sandy Springs businessman Oz Hill returns as emcee. Mr. Hill is the principal and Chief Executive Officer of International Security Solutions Inc., a full-service security consulting, planning and program management corporation. Pastor Henry Bush of Sharon Community United Methodist Church will provide inspirational thoughts and the challenge for all to continue Dr. King’s essential work. Both men have been a part of the City’s MLK Day Celebration since the event’s inception.
