<h1>At 11 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 21, a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration will begin with a march from the Greenbrier County Courthouse to the Lewisburg United Methodist Church via Washington Street.<\/h1>\r\nRight before the march there will be a reading of Lewisburg Mayor John Manchester\u2019s proclamation of Martin Luther King, Jr. Week. After the march, a free community lunch will be served in the church, catered by Lisa Carter\u2019s Culinary Class at Davis Stuart. At 12:30 p.m. in the church sanctuary, there will be a program of singing, oration, poetry, and reading of children\u2019s essays to celebrate Dr. King\u2019s accomplishments and build enthusiasm for carrying forward his dream of equality in civil rights and harmony among all races.\r\n\r\nThe theme for this year\u2019s event is Fairness, Unity, Equality: \u201cWhatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.\u201d The quote is from a 1964 address by Martin Luther King, Jr. in Lincoln, Nebraska. Elementary school students who entered the 2019 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Essay Contest and the Art Contest based their works on this theme. Students at Crichton Elementary School, Greenbrier Episcopal School, Rainelle Elementary School, Lewisburg Elementary School, and Mountain View Elementary and Middle School participated. The winning essays and works of art will be featured in the program.\r\n\r\nThe keynote speaker will be Jeff Chandler Woods, a West Virginia lawyer who recently ran for the Supreme Court of West Virginia. He was born in Lewisburg and graduated from Greenbrier East High School, West Virginia State College, and Howard University Law School. He has many years of experience with the law and the system of justice in the U.S. Army. Last year during his campaign he emphasized his resolve to do all he can to ensure everyone receives \u201cequal protection and justice under the law.\u201d\r\n\r\nA musical tribute will be presented by Dr. Calvin McClinton, music director at the Old Stone Presbyterian Church. He is a celebrated performer, conductor, choral director, author, and lecturer. He was responsible for organizing and directing two large community music events in Lewisburg during 2018.\r\n\r\nLewisburg City Council Member Beverly White will touch the hearts of the people at the gathering with a poem.
