Martin Luther King Jr. Day breakfast set at McRoberts

A breakfast is planned for Monday morning in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The event will be held at 10 a.m. on January 16 at Church of God Militant Pillar and Ground of the Truth in McRoberts.

The Cowan Community Center has hosted a similar breakfast in observance of this federal holiday for the last several years. Nell Fields, board president of Cowan Community Center Fields, said the breakfast began back in the late 1990s when the center’s youth group wanted to learn what it was like to live in Letcher County during the Civil Rights Movement.

Funding for the youth group has since been depleted, but the community center continues to sponsor the event.
