ANNAPOLIS — Ticket sales are underway for the 34th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Breakfast, which will be held on Monday, January 19, 2015, at Anne Arundel Community College. For the first time, this year’s guest speaker is a middle school student, Katherine Hernandez Marroquin.
Doors open at 7:30 a.m., and the program begins at 8 a.m. in the David S. Jenkins Gymnasium on the Arnold campus, 101 College Parkway.
Participants are asked to donate canned goods as part of a food drive sponsored by breakfast co-sponsors, the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority and the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, for neighbors in need.
The event honors six community members who best represent the spirit of the late Dr. King and also works to reinforce Dr. King’s message to the youth of the community.
