Our 2019 MLK Jr Day Event has been successfully completed. Our theme this year was
“Kids in Action”. Each child attending received a sticker identifying that child as a “Kid in
Action.” The program featured the Cheat Lake Elementary School Choir, Mylan Park
Elementary School Choir, the Morgantown Children’s Choir, music by Al Anderson and
Friends, and a story read by Jeremy Thomas. There were also five essays by students from
local schools, written as part of the NAACP essay contest. Mayor Bill Kawecki welcomed
everyone on behalf of the City of Morgantown. We collected boxes of donations for the
Scotts Run Backpack Program to support students at area schools who need food assistance
over the weekend. The program and pictures are here, with past those from past events here.
We co-sponsored this event with Main Street Morgantown. Thanks to the City of
Morgantown and Rachel Wood of Virtus Wealth Solutions for their financial support, as
well to the staff of the Metropolitan Theater for the great assistance in making this
successful and rewarding event.
