The City of Acworth will be hosting the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration on Monday, January 21, 2019. Festivities will begin with a unity walk from the Rosenwald School to Zion Hill Baptist Church, where the ceremony will be held. The walk will begin at 9:30 a.m. and the ceremony will begin at 10:00 a.m.
Immediately following the ceremony, the Acworth Achievers Mentoring and After School Program will host their Annual Day of Service. They will be working on a service project at Roberts School Community Center and welcome other volunteers from the community to join them! The Acworth Achievers are currently hosting a drive to collect items for an organization called Foster4Love and their Birthday Box Program. This program is designed to benefit foster children throughout Cobb County, ages 0- 21, many of who need our help making their birthday feel special. Contributions are appreciated and can be dropped off at the Acworth Parks, Recreation and Community Resource Department.
