Save the Date! January 17th is MLK Day of Giving Back

Hopkinton's 4th Annual MLK Day of Giving Back will take place on January 17, 2011, and although it's over a month away, committee members are planning now to ensure the event's success.

"We need to be doing a lot of planning now," says Chair Linda Katz.

Katz has participated in all of the previous MLK Days and is actually responsible for bringing the event to Hopkinton. During an interview at the HCAM Studio, Katz recalled how she heard a recording of Coretta Scott King six years ago and it made her think that MLK Day should be a day on rather than a day off.

“The structure area has been roped off and students are not allowed to enter that area until work has been completed,” said Parson.

Recess will continue, however, and will take place outdoors on the Center School field and blacktop area behind the school as long as the construction is limited to the roped-off area.
