According to Lamar Jones, Chairman of MLK Jr. annual event, this was one of the best years because of the weather. The whole weekend was sunny And there was great participation in all the activities. Jones’ joy was seeing the community working together, across racial and denomination lines. He said. “It was a team effort.”
