Monday: The 34th Annual Martin Luther King Interfaith Prayer Breakfast is this morning at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel in Durham. This year's theme is "50 Years Later: The Journey Continues In Pursuit of the Dream."
The United Way's MLK Day of Service is today. Their motto is to make the holiday “A Day On, Not a Day Off.” While volunteer opportunities for signature projects in Orange, Wake, Durham and Johnston counties are full, you can still make a difference by volunteering for another project.
